Images of the River & Rhymes of the River - DRBA Showcases Children's Artwork and Poetry
Display of all of the art work and poetry submitted displayed at North Elementary. (February 2011)
Art and poetry about rivers and trails by Caswell County students will be showcased in local schools through May, 2012. Art projects were submitted by elementary students and poetry was submitted by middle and high school students. The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) coordinated the student art and poetry program to increase the awareness of river and trail preservation.
There were over 50 creative entries submitted to the exhibit. DRBA was thrilled at the amount of hard work that was put towards these projects. The display created from all of the entries will be traveling through the elementary schools of Caswell County until May. For the month of June, it will be on display in the Gunn-Memorial Library of Yanceyville, North Carolina. We plan to have many more programs with the students of Caswell County because it is important to promote the preservation and conservation of the Dan River Basin.
In Caswell County, DRBA is currently planning a scavenger hunt for grades three through five for the last week of April. We are hoping all of the elementary schools are able to participate!
