Storm Drain Stenciling Saturday

When: June 20, 2020. 9:00am-12:00pm

Where: Fairhill Partners

Storm Drain Stenciling Saturday

To educate the public about the connections between stormwater runoff and local watershed health, we are inviting volunteers to head out into the community on June 20th to stencil the message “Lake Erie Starts Here” next to residential storm drains in Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, and Shaker Heights. To minimize exposure and respect social distancing guidelines we will be running this event a little differently than we have past Storm Drain Stenciling Saturdays.

We will host the event at the Fairhill Partners building (12200 Fairhill Road, Cleveland) parking lot and will load stenciling materials (paint, stencil, etc.) into vehicles as volunteers arrive. Volunteers will receive full instructions and assignments for nearby residential streets in the Doan Brook watershed in Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, and Shaker Heights. Volunteers will not be assigned to teams. If you arrive individually, you will stencil individually. If you arrive with a small group, you may stencil with your family or team. All volunteers will return to Fairhill parking lot by noon to drop off materials.

Please register using the form on this page so we know to expect you and can make sure we have enough materials prepared. In order to minimize handling of pens and materials we would ask that you download, print, and sign the waivers in advance and bring them to the event with you if you are able. You will find links to the PDFs directly below the registration form.

Please reach out to Andrew at if you have any questions. And if you are interested in potentially borrowing a stencil and materials to do some stenciling in your neighborhood please let us know!
