Watershed Awareness & Rain Barrel Workshops
Celebrate The Rain!
It’s time for us to start celebrating rainwater. So, our organization offers Watershed Awareness & Rain Barrel Workshops across Pennsylvania.
Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water, supplying non-chlorinated water for gardening by collecting and storing rain water from your roof through a connection to your downspout that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and rivers. Rain barrels keep excess water out of the storm-water system thus alleviating some of the stormwater issues plaguing the region.
Workshop attendees will learn about the problems associated with stormwater run-off, learn watershed-friendly landscaping techniques and how to conserve water in their homes.
PRC West participants will receive a FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel, and PRC East participants will learn how to retrofit a 55-gallon drum into a rain barrel.
