Warren County SWCD and other sponsors partner with Save Local Waters to sponsor the Rain Barrel Art Project every year. Save Local Waters and the Rain Barrel Art Project aim to educate the public on environmental issues like storm water runoff, watersheds and water conservation. The Rain Barrel Art Project invites local artists to design and paint rain barrels that are auctioned off at the Cincinnati Zoo. Learn more about the Rain Barrel Art Project by visiting Save Local Waters. We encourage you to get involved by either submitting a painting design or by visiting the zoo for this colorful event!
