Local students are sending a message to keep our watershed pollutant-free. On Tuesday, Grade 8 students from Jody Bonner-Vickers' class will participate in a binational initiative to raise awareness of the Rainy Lake and Lake of the Woods watershed to promote stewardship of the water quality within it.

The stencil will read “No Dumping: Drains to River” and also include an image of a fish.
