The flyer will be used to discuss in further details about the Yellow Creek Watershed, stormwater, and measure landowners can take to prevent pollutants from entering nearby streams.   All students in these classes took part in creating their own unique flyer, which were submitted to and selected by Eastgate’s Environmental staff the Mill Creek MetroParks .   The flyer selected represented the overall theme for the project and was created by Olivia Morgan.
