New Storm Drain Markers

Thanks to a new city volunteer program, critters like this one (see picture) are appearing curbside all around town as a reminder that what goes down the storm drain ends up choking the waterways that Austin's creatures call home. The city will provide the metal markers (in both English and Spanish), as well as maps, door hangers, safety vests, and other handy equipment to anyone interested in helping out with the effort, so feel free to extend a hand – these wild animals don't bite.
