The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District wishes to thank everyone who participated in our 2018 Rain Barrel Yard Art Campaign. Five talented artists painted a barrel that uniquely and creatively reflected this year’s theme . . . Celebrating Rivers!
Ohio pioneered the river preservation movement in 1968 with the passage of the nation’s first scenic rivers act and the artists did a tremendous job honoring this 50 year milestone along with the importance of our rivers! The sale of the barrels collectively raised nearly $1,500 for the District’s community education programs and will help conserve thousands of gallons of water.
Thanks to all who painted and purchased rain barrels! Special recognition also goes to Ken’s Auto Body, Inc. in Troy Township for protecting every barrel with a clear sealant.
