Science + Art = Lasting Learning

For an evening of Family Fun on June 1,2012, the Santa Fe Watershed Association called for donations of bottle caps to create River Heart and Logo panels.


– collect caps

(recycling centers sometimes let you harvest theirs)

– get backing ready

(plywood thick enough for screws is important)

–  wash caps with bleach in washing machine

– use glue dots to attach caps – avoids mess

– screw down caps after assembly
