Kenmore-Garfield High School students created a piece of artwork made from upcycled materials. The otter picture (chosen because of the close correlation between otters and clean water) was a collaboration of students in grades 9-12, including students in the multiple disabilities unit. The trash came from the Tuscarawas River and was collected by the Akron Zoo Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (aluminum, plastic and cardboard). The Kenmore-Garfield art teacher, Kelley Waickman, coordinated the project. The otter artwork will be displayed at the zoo's North American river otter habitat.
