Stormwater Summer

Summer is in full swing, and ACC Stormwater has many opportunities for hands-on fun. Last month, we led weekly activities with kids at the Sandy Creek Nature Camp, chatted about rain barrels at the Athens Farmers Market, and made crafts and talked about pollution at AthFest. This month is just as jam-packed with warm weather goodness.
