Your home is the first line of defense for the health of Lake Erie!
Rain and snow melt that runs over your property and into the storm drain goes to our waterways untreated. It brings with it stormwater pollutants such as fertilizers, pesticides, dog waste, winter road salt, oil and gas, litter, eroded soil, and so much more.
You can help be the solution to storm water pollution and contribute to the health of our Great Lake!
Linking art and creating thinking with science, the poster contest provides K-12 grade students the chance to develop and share their thoughts and ideas about natural resource issues. This year's theme, Lake Erie Starts Here, is about how our connection to Lake Erie starts at home, or at school, or wherever you are and go during your day. Your actions affect the lake as we are all a part of the Lake Erie Watershed.
