   ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES 
New trail camerashat will be used to replace most of our old and aging cameras.
This year the city of Cincinnati provided us with additional funding for our Environmental Services program. We used these funds to buy 27 new trail cameras that will be used to replace most of our old and aging cameras. These new cameras will help us catch more illegal dumping and hopefully deter people in the future.

Report illegal dumping and dump sites with the 311Cincy App.

ARTS

Blink Art Installation

We had a wonderful time in the BLINK Parade, and our light installation, Neon Wave, was a big hit with passersby! We loved seeing our City all lit up and shining so brightly. This weekend was just another reminder that Cincinnati is beautiful and we want to keep it that way!

    ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Community Pride Flags Community Pride Flags Community Pride Flags

Last week, the Education Team partnered with the Arts Team to install the Community Pride Flags near the Neon Wave installation just in time for BLINK. Over 100 youth from around the city contributed their art and ideas to this project over the summer and were able to see their work displayed alongside so many other amazing artists over the weekend.
