Barrels of fun…

Rachel Eklund (left) from Maine and Laura Botero from Massachusetts smile as they paint barrels for the Canyonlands Community Recycling Center.The pair were part of a group of about 25 participants who had just returned from a two-week trek into the La Sal mountains. Turner Lumber, Walker’s True Value, and the city of Moab donated paint for this project. The students said they were pleased to know that their colorful barrels would bring a smile to people’s faces when they come to the center to drop off recycling. Outward Bound also does service projects with the Youth Garden Project, Elder Care Services, Solutions, Weed Warriors in Dinosaur National Monument and the Green River Community Center.
