Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop

September 22, 2015 05:30 pm - 07:00 PM

Rain barrels capture water that runs off your roof and into the nearest storm drain. Capturing the water to reuse on lawns, trees, shrubs and flowerbeds reduces pollution in the local streams, helps prevent flooding, and saves money on water bills. There will be a 'build your own barrel' demonstration along with discussion about other ways you can control stormwater on your property. Advanced registration by September 20 is required to build a barrel. The cost is $30 and space is limited. All materials and tools will be provided. The talk and barrel building demo only is free and open on a walk-in basis . The workshop will be held at the North Branch Nature Center at 5:30 PM. Register by calling 882-8276 or emailing
