Martial Arts school in Annapolis, Balanced Life Skills, Rain Barrel Project is underway

word of month character

For the third year in a row now we will be holding our Where Does the Rain Go? awareness day and silent auction of decorated rain barrels.  This year is very special in that we have many schools and artist involved as well as our own Balanced Life Skills students sharing in the fun of decorating the rain barrels.
To see how the paint day went at our studio at Balanced Life Skills, here is the link Rain Barrel Paint day 09.
This is one of the most fun days.  Kids get to enjoy being creative and both parents and students learn about the need to get all of our storm water to infiltrate the earth.  Rain barrels are just one way.  This year our education program will take part in Earth Day celebrations at Quiet Water Park with some of the barrels on display.  The following week the barrels will be displayed around our area at various locations prior to the silent auction on May 15.
Follow our progress and visit us at Quiet Waters on April 18th for more information on rain barrels.
