Storm Drain Stenciling Kit

April 29

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 12:00 am on Monday, repeating until October 6, 2019

Check out a storm drain stenciling kit for your small group outing

Most St. Paul storm drains lead directly to the river. Think of all those things that go down the drain after it rains or snow melts: trash, oil, road salt, and cigarette butts are all being carried into our river in large amounts.

But there is a way to help! Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) works with groups to stencil storm drains with the message “Keep em’ clean… Drains to River” and distribute educational flyers to local homes to help spread the word and keep runoff pollutants out of our river. It’s a great way to get outside and help the river and is an excellent fit for groups looking for a fun, outdoor team-building experience with immediate results.

For groups smaller than 20, check out a stenciling kit and work with us to plan your own stenciling outing. FMR supplies bins mid-April through mid-October (weather permitting). Stenciling must take place within St. Paul city limits.
