Calling All Artists!!!

Artists are needed to participate in the 2nd Annual Rain Barrel Art Project, hosted by the Regional Storm Water Collaborative and the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. This joint effort continues to educate the community about water conservation and pollution caused by storm water runoff. A great way to reduce that runoff is to harness rainwater in your very own rain barrel. Typically, rain barrels are a drab color, but with the touch of the artists, they come alive with scenes of nature, wildlife, Cincinnati, and many other designs, making them much more appealing to install on the side of your home. Utilizing a rain barrel could save a homeowner up to 1000 gallons of water in just one summer.

Artists may submit their artwork ideas via SaveLocalWaters.org now through January 25th, 2014. The top 50 entries accepted will be given rain barrels provided by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati, to bring their proposed artwork to life. The completed barrels will be displayed at our Go Green Garden Exhibit during the month of April 2014. We are thrilled to be hosting the rain barrel event once again. As the Greenest Zoo in America, we are always looking for ways to inspire our community to take action that can impact the environment in positive ways.

The grand finale to the event is the Rain Barrel Art Auction scheduled on April 24th, 2014. The painted rain barrels will be auctioned during our 5th Annual Party for the Planet Earth Day Celebration. Proceeds from the auction will be split between the Zoo and the Regional Storm Water Collaborative to further more education and awareness.

Almost every country on Earth has the internet, which means that a company’s
marketing efforts can be seen on a global scale.

Some disadvantages of mail surveys are the cost, less response from
customers and the increased amount of time to receive responses
and the amount of work required to code responses from
participants. Psychologist through out the United States

Your opportunity gets better once you enter the World Wide Web.
Setting up your funnel so that it allows leads to jump in whenever they need
to is a must. Stay away from filler posts such as “hey – my dog just ate my burger.

just a nice word for concentration camps. Skyer had direct contact with the families while at Summit Camp for 35 years.
At the end of each reading camp day, provide students with
prizes as a reward for their efforts. The colour of the skies change very rapidly during these hours and make for
brilliant photos. There seems to be an increasing number of trainers calling hire fitness programs Ventura boot camps.
