Sign up to Volunteer and Storm Drain Stencil with Blind Tiger Guest House & Gathering Space

Want to connect with others while improving and protecting Casco Bay?

On Thursday, May 12, Blind Tiger Guest House & Gathering Space is teaming up with Friends of Casco Bay to host a Storm Drain Stenciling in Portland from 5 to 7:45 p.m.

What connects our streets to Casco Bay? Storm drains. Storm drains and catch basins are meant to carry water away from our city streets, they end up carrying much more, including trash and hazardous wastes that impact Casco Bay.

It takes a community to protect our coastal waters. Storm Drain Stenciling is a hands‐on way for you to “take to the streets” and create a greater awareness for reducing stormwater pollution. You and your team of 3-4 participants will walk around the West End to stencil the message “Do not dump, Drains to Casco Bay” on storm drains. You’ll also distribute door hangers to let folks know why the message matters to Casco Bay.
