If you've spent some time roaming the streets of St. Paul, you may have noticed a message painted near the storm drains. Now is your chance to leave your mark in the name of water quality! After a brief introduction and presentation about runoff pollution at the brewery from FMR staff, we'll head out to the nearby downtown streets to stencil storm drains.

Equipped with spray paint, a stencil, map and safety materials, we'll head out in small groups to write "Keep 'em Clean, Drains to River" next to area storm drains. Volunteers also distribute educational door hangers to nearby homes and businesses, making a visual connection between the newly stenciled drains and local water quality, as well as what actions they can take in their home and yard to protect our local waters.

Participants should be prepared to walk approximately one mile while completing their mapped stenciling route.

After the stenciling activity, we'll reconvene back at the taproom to enjoy a pint or a flight to cheers our great work and learn more about Tin Whiskers Brewing Company!
