Community Watershed Education programs are something Bluegrass Greensource (BGGS) knows how to implement. We work with many communities throughout Central Kentucky to teach youth and adult programs about the importance of good water quality. For the past few years, BGGS has worked on a youth watershed education program with an artistic outcome. Through our partnerships with the Friends of Stoner Creek and the Kentucky Division of Water, Bourbon County students participated in watershed-based environmental education throughout the year. Then they depicted their knowledge of our creeks and streams by creating watershed art for the Friends of Stoner Creek Art Competition. The lessons focused on water quality, riparian buffers, and aquatic habitats. The top three winners received a cash prize and free passes to attend the Annual Friends of Stoner Creek picnic in August. The top three Winners are as follows:

1st Place – Laney W.

Bourbon County Middle School

2nd Place – Brynlea C.

Bourbon Christian Academy

3rd Place – Carly P.
