Student Art to Decorate Storm Drain in Norristown on July 29th

Montgomery County Conservation District and the Schuylkill Action Network are partnering with the municipality of Norristown to install student artwork around a storm drain in downtown Norristown to raise awareness that these drains flow to the Schuylkill River and should be kept clean.

The installation will take place on July 29th at the corner of Main and Swede streets, with an information booth set up from 11:30am to 1:30pm.

The artwork for the drain was designed by Kristin Olinger, an eighth-grade student at Phil-Mont Christian Academy in Springfield Township. Kristin won first place in the Schuylkill Street Art Contest’s Montgomery County category, which had over a hundred entries.

All are invited to come see the new sidewalk art, and join us on July 29th to learn more about doing your part to protect the Schuylkill River.
