Mural features recycling, environment

   YMCA Earth Service Corps/Americorps members Camille Sperry and Lily Bach, along with local high school Earth Club members, created the new mural on Bothell's Main Street. The 40' x 20' mural addresses recycling concerns and portrays trees, a lake, wildlife, and mountains, which the students feel should be protected for future generations. Environment awareness is a key issue for the local Earth Clubs. High school students with an interest in protecting the environment should contact the Northshore YMCA or the representatives of Earth Club at their high school. Bothell's Parker Paints donated paint and private individuals donated both time and materials.
