For a sixth year, local artists were challenged to creatively paint rain barrels with a prairie theme to celebrate the important roles that prairies play in water quality. The Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center and the City of Lincoln Watershed Management selected artists based on their applications addressing the prairie theme. Teachers were encouraged to use this activity as a teaching tool in their classroom. A total of 24 artists were selected for this year's program. Selected artists had five weeks to paint and return their barrels. During the month of April, the barrels will be on display with interpretative signage at SouthPointe Pavilions

The barrels are now available for purchase on the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center website remote site. All proceeds will support the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center educational information for exhibits and other environmental education programs.
