For a fifth year, local artists were challenged to creatively paint rain barrels as part of a fun way to educate the community on the benefits of using rain barrels to improve water quality. The Lincoln Children's Zoo and the City of Lincoln Watershed Management chose 25 artists based on their applications. Teachers who applied for their class were required to submit a short description of how they will use the rain barrel as a teaching tool in their classroom.

Selected artists had five weeks to paint and return their barrels. The barrels were on display with interpretative signage at SouthPointe Pavilions during the months of March and April 2013, and were available for sale on the Lincoln Children's Zoo website. The remaining barrels were auctioned at SouthPointe Pavilions on April 20th. All proceeds will support the Lincoln Children's Zoo summer classes, educational information for exhibits and other environmental education programs.
