The YouCAN Corvallis team has been working every weekend during the month of May, painting a beautiful mural on the back of a building at 300 SW 4th Street.  Under the guidance of internationally recognized muralist Esteban Camacho Steffensen, YouCAN youth, their friends, and classmates produced a mural with a message.  “Walking Lightly in Time” features youth enjoying the outdoors, scenes of Oregon wildlife, and the tracks of living and extinct Oregon species.
