Lynn White of Butler County Soil and Water asked Ridgeway’s Green Team to participate in the Ohio River Valley Rain Barrel Art Project. Under the leadership of art teacher Terry Haynes-Toney, the barrels were created and delivered to the Cincinnati Zoo on March 26 and will be on display at the zoo the first three weeks of April.

On April 24 from 5-8:30 p.m. the barrels will be auctioned to raise money for environmental education programs. Ridgeway was the only school in Butler county to take advantage of this opportunity to share how important it is to take care of our earth.
