MISSOULA, Mont. -

As part of Earth Day celebrations, Missoula youngsters are leaving conservation messages all over Missoula. Elementary School students painted the curbs near storm drains.

The messages remind everybody to protect Missoula's waterways and groundwater. Forty storm drains are decorated. The word is "Drains to Stream, Keep it Clean." "Drains to Aquifer, Protect Our Water."

"I'm saying you don't want to dump trash and kill our earth," said Cold Springs Elementary student Breail Manlove.
