Great PARTY at Turners!

25th Anniversary Party

Thank you all for coming to our 25th Anniversary PARTY!


"Drain SmART Salem"

View artistic, tasteful and educational murals on city stormdrains all around downtown Salem! Murals illustrate the connection between stormdrains and the ocean....that stormdrains lead directly into the ocean and can transport harmful chemicals and trash into the marine environment.

The latest addition by Kevin O'Connell and Natasha Lee Evans - onwaves design - to Drain SmART Salem! Splash says all stormdrains "drain to the ocean!" Listen to Splash, he's a smart Turtle!
A HUGE thank you for funding this and other local projects goes to
NOAA Marine Debris Prevention through Education and Outreach.
