Stencil Your School

Inner West Council's Stencil Your Street program connects urban residents with their waterways – the Cooks River in the south and Parramatta River to the north. Everything we do in our streets has an impact on our waterways. By stencilling drains, everyone will know that whatever goes down the drain ends up in our rivers. The drains are just for rain!
