FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jane Maginot of the Washington County Cooperative Extension
Service has been recognized May 17 as a Watershed Guardian of the West Fork Watershed
for development of the Northwest Arkansas UpStream Art project.
The Upstream Art project art uses art to draw attention to urban storm drains in an
effort to educate the public about stormwater pollution.
“UpStream Art has been one of the most enjoyable projects I have worked on as a water
quality educator,” Maginot said. “It has allowed me to reach a whole new audience
of people by tapping into the creative community of Northwest Arkansas.”
This program has resulted in 34 storm drains in Northwest Arkansas being painted with
stream themes and educational messaging conveying that the storm drain inlet drains
to the creek. Maginot has also served for years as a volunteer at stream cleanups
helping to organize, coordinate, and lead volunteers.
“As usual with project management, there is a time when you feel that you are juggling
with all your balls in the air and you never know if you are going to catch them,”
Maginot said. ‘With UpStream Art there is a large network of people that help me in
catching those balls. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that
works on this project.”
The Watershed Guardian Award program a stewardship recognition effort carried out
by the Beaver Watershed Alliance Awareness and Education Committee. The Beaver Watershed
Allianceis a non-profit organization focused on maintaining high quality drinking
water in Beaver Lake and improving water quality within the Beaver Lake Watershed.
