Watersheds, Rain Barrels, and Rain Gardens
The water you drink today could be the same water (or water molecules) that a dinosaur bathed in millions of years ago? Planet Earth will never create new water. (A compelling reason to protect and conserve this precious resource!)
The way that we live on the land has a direct impact on the quality of water in our rivers and streams – even if we don’t live near one. Everything from the consumer choices that we make to how we manage our lawns and gardens, the cleaning products and personal care products that we use, our pet care, car care, recycling efforts, etc has a direct impact on the quality of water in our rivers and streams, and in turn, our drinking water supply.
At PRC, we Celebrate the Rain! Take part in our Watershed Awareness/Rain Barrel Workshops to learn about their watershed, how to reduce their impact, stormwater management options, and how to build and install a rain barrel for rainwater harvesting.
