Rain barrels designed by local students as part of OUC’s Water Color Project, which teaches the importance of water conservation through art, will be on display throughout the center. 

Since 2006, OUC has sponsored the Water Color Project, an education outreach effort designed to encourage water conservation through art. Through OUC’s partnership with Orange County Public School, elementary school students create artwork for OUC’s Water Conservation Calendar and middle and high school students paint rain barrels that get silent auctioned to the community with proceeds benefitting the winning schools’ art programs. Learn More.
