Today is our final day of painting the water conservation mural that we've been working on with National Geographic and the video above shows our whole process. We learned a great deal from the research and used it in our mural so now it's time to begin sharing some of what we learned with others! We'll post the video and the final mural pictured below on social media and put together a campaign in the spring that includes the beach cleanup we organized so the community can take action.
