Connecting the Drops Rain Barrel Exhibit coming to Milton!
For its fourth anniversary, the Connecting the Drops traveling Rain Barrel Exhibit will be held at the Milton Farmers Market, adjacent to the Hannaford Plaza in Milton, VT, from June 9th – July 7th. As in years prior, this display will feature original art by local artists using rain barrels as the canvas! During the exhibit Chittenden County residents will have a chance to sign up and win one of the five, uniquely-decorated rain barrels for use at their own home or work.
The purpose of the exhibit is to raise awareness about stormwater runoff and the actions property owners can take reduce stormwater and its negative impact on our waterways. The art-adorned rain barrels will be given away to lucky winners at the July 7th Farmers Market. You can enter for a chance to win in either of two ways: by scanning the QR code at the exhibit between June 9th – July 7th or by visiting http://letitrainvt.org/connecting-the-drops/.
CALL FOR RAIN GARDEN VOLUNTEERS!
Are you interested in helping to prevent stormwater from negatively impacting Lake Champlain by maintaining a rain garden? The Adopt-a-Rain Garden Program is an opportunity for individuals to assist in keeping Chittenden County's public rain gardens clean and attractive by performing basic maintenance activities like picking up litter, pulling weeds, and installing new mulch. One rain garden in particular that needs a new caretaker is the Brownell Library rain garden in Essex Junction.
Thanks to all of our dedicated volunteers in years past! We couldn't do this without your help.
