Don’t Drip and Drive at Vancouver Farmer’s Market – July @ Vancouver Farmer's Market
Jul 13 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Don’t Drip and Drive at Vancouver Farmer’s Market

Whether your home one block or several from a stream, river or lake, what starts in your driveway can end up as toxic stormwater runoff and contribute to water pollution. According to a study by the WA Department of Ecology, an estimated 600,000 quarts of motor oil and fluids leak into our SW Washington watersheds each year.

We’ve partnered up with the Vancouver Farmer’s Market to offer free oil leak checks to the community. No previous automotive experience is required! We will provide all instructions at the on-site volunteer orientation. To learn more about Don’t Drip and Drive, click here.

When: Saturday July 13th, 9am – 12pm

  • Dress for weather
  • Bring reusable water bottle
  • A free reusable farmer’s market bag will be gifted to you as a thank you for volunteering!
