The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) invites media to see the new Stream of Dreams fence mural being installed at The Quarry in St. Marys on Wednesday, September 25th at 1:30 pm.

"We are pleased to bring the internationally recognized Stream of Dreams program to St. Marys," said Vanni Azzano, UTRCA Community Education Supervisor. "The students and staff from Little Falls School and Holy Name School have painted 1,000 recycled plastic fish that we will display for everyone to see on the fence at The Quarry. These colourful fish are a reminder of wide variety of fish species in the Thames watershed."

This project has been made possible with generous funding from McLean Taylor Construction Limited in partnership with the Avon Maitland District School Board, Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board, Little Falls Public School, and Holy Name of Mary Catholic School. Additional support has been provided by the Town of St. Marys staff and members of the Rotary Club of St. Marys.

Stream of Dreams is an award-winning program of watershed education through community art. The goal is to help people understand their connections to water and fish habitat, and how to make behavioural changes to protect streams, rivers, lakes and oceans.
