Bottle Caps PicSPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A Springfield Elementary School is showing off its new mural, and it took them nearly a year to round up the supplies.

A group of fourth and fifth graders at Guy Lee Elementary, called the Green Team, collected 15,000 bottle caps to create a mural. The coral reef themed piece consists of five four-by-eight plywood panels.

“I think my favorite part was just seeing the children work and being able to just dive in and work as a team and for reaching a goal,” said Bradley Barnhart, Green Team Advisor.

The mural will be unveiled this Friday night at Guy Lee Elementary, located at 755 Harlow Rd, Springfield, OR 97477.
