After a brief introduction and presentation about run-off pollution at the brewery from Friends of the Mississippi River staff, we’ll head out to the nearby downtown streets for the storm drain stenciling activity.
Equipped with spray paint, a stencil and safety material, we’ll head out in small groups to stencil “Keep ’em Clean, Drains to River” next to area storm drains. Volunteers also distribute educational door hangers to nearby homes and businesses, making a visual connection between the newly stenciled drains and local water quality, and what actions can be made in their home and yard to help protect our local waters. Participants should be prepared to walk aproximately one mile while completing their mapped stenciling route.
After the stenciling activity, we’ll reconvene back at the taproom to enjoy a pint or a flight and learn more about Tin Whiskers Brewing Company!
