New for 2017 is community-created content in the Public Media Commons. March themes are favorite childhood possessions, kids say the funniest things, St. Patrick’s Day, spring, and wildlife. So, the next time you have a great photo or video that fits a theme; upload it to the Public Media Commons website so it can be featured in our award-winning outdoor space. A list of themes and the upload link can be found on our Collaborations page.
