Grogg traveled to Kanawha City Elementary School to help educate the children about storm water and help them make the ornaments.
It is important to educate children about why pollutants should be kept out of storm water earlier in their academic careers, said Tom Elkins, storm water manager for the city.
"Most people don't really know what storm water is and how it is affected by pollutants," Elkins said. "If we can catch these kids while they're in elementary school, hopefully we can change their future behaviors."
The storm water public education and outreach program will not stop here. Grogg also plans to train teachers in area schools about the importance of storm water management in hopes that they will incorporate the information into their classroom curriculum.
Grogg is also hoping the arts community in Charleston will embrace her message about the importance of storm water management.
"And as long as we're doing public education, we should have some fun while we're at it," she said.
A hot chocolate bar will be set up in the lobby for the ArtWalk, she said. The lobby will be open 5 to 8 p.m., she said.
The exhibit will remain in the lobby from now until Christmas, Grogg said.
A drawing will be held for one of the trees in the display. A large spruce pine tree, complete with root ball, will be given away.
The winner can take the tree home or donate it to any agency or organization, Grogg said.
Green's Feed and Seed and Valley Gardens loaned the trees and shrubbery used in the exhibit to the city.
