Drain Smart Arkansas 2017
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Episcopal Collegiate students 6th through 9th grade portrayed the city's skyline, railroad bridge and outline of Arkansas River in their Drainsmart project.
The students along with their art teacher, Sarah Higgins, created the painting on the corner of Kavanaugh and University.
"This was a great opportunity for the students to learn more about conservation while creating a long term mural in the community they reside," said Higgins.
Drain Smart is designed to show the importance and function of our local storm drains and how litter can affect our planet. When it rains Little Rock's municipal storm drains pick up everything and the polluted water flows directly to our streams, rivers, and lakes.
THV11 has partnered with Audubon Arkansas in efforts to keep our state's waterways clean.
You can find more murals from this year's participants as they are completed right here on THV11.com.
