Earth Day 2014 Happenings @ the Freight Shed: Market Morning April 19, 2014

Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22nd so during this Saturday's farmers market, we'll be sharing ways to "Green" our lifestyles, environment and community. Join us in the south end Community Room!

Bath Community Stenciling Blitz
Sunday, April 27 | 1 - 4 pm
Bath City Hall parking lot

Our alliance friends from the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) will be on hand during this Saturday's farmers market to sign folks up for the upcoming Bath Community Stenciling Blitz, next Sunday, April 27 @ 1 to 4 pm. 

What can we do to keep the Kennebec River, its tributaries, and our city’s sewer system in optimal shape?

Storm Drain Stenciling.

It's simple way to prevent this type of pollution. By stenciling a friendly “Keep It Clean -- Drains To River” message next to our city’s storm drains, we can let neighbors and visitors know that anything dumped and tossed in the street or on lawns can wind up in the nearby river.

Storm Drain Stenciling is a widely used and fun community-building activity for families, neighborhood groups, scout troops, service clubs, and local businesses. By participating you will become more aware of the link between our city’s landscape and waterways as well as leave behind a helpful reminder for others.

For more information about the Stenciling Blitz, visit, call 442-8400 or email them here
