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.

Read coverage of the mural unveiling event in the local Gazette Times:
