Students create sidewalk art at Miller and Third to educate community on preventing pollution.

COURTESY PHOTO: CITY OF GRESHAM - Students from Rockwood Prep Academy, Powell Butte and North Gresham Elementary schools painted on sidewalks to teach about stormwater. Students from local elementary schools helped make their community a brighter place by painting the sidewalks — both to add more public artwork to downtown Gresham and also to help educate neighbors on keeping stormwater free of pollutants.

Kids from Rockwood Prep Academy, Powell Butte and North Gresham Elementary schools made their way to the intersections at Northwest Third Street and Miller Avenue, near the Gresham Library, to paint the sidewalks next to storm drains.

COURTESY PHOTO: CITY OF GRESHAM - The students painted at the corners of Northwest Third Street and Miller Avenue. The artwork showcases the flora and fauna that can be found throughout East Multnomah County, from wood ducks floating down Johnson Creek to towering trees reaching up toward blue skies. This is the latest artwork from students, with other sidewalk stormwater painting being found elsewhere in downtown and by the Gresham Arts Plaza.

Gresham has a storm drain cleaning assistance program for businesses tasked with maintaining and cleaning the drains near their storefront. Learn more and sign up at bit.ly/3tIc51D
