We are calling for volunteers to help educate residents! In Cobb County, all storm drains lead to surface water, not to a treatment plant. By placing aluminum markers with our signature frog on storm drains, you remind the community that stormwater and pollution flowing into drains go directly to our streams. Working in pairs, you will be sent out to mark storm drains in a targeted area. This is a great way to help improve local water quality, educate the community, and meet other concerned and engaged volunteers!
What you will be doing… and what you can expect the day to look like.
Once orientated, we'll be working on the school campus and in a nearby subdivision. Each pair of volunteers will have a backpack with a map and supplies (markers, education materials, trash bags). Teams will distribute education materials to each home, mark all the storm drains, and pick up any litter.
Dress appropriately for the weather. Bring a water bottle, hat or visor, sunglasses, sunscreen. We recommend wearing layers (as it's cool in the morning but warms up quickly) and comfortable walking shoes.
Families are welcome.
