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 rainwater 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 stormwater 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 we can all be a part of the solution to point source and nonpoint source pollution by practicing common household tasks in a non-polluting manner. These practices include lawn and garden maintenance, pet care, car care, food choices, cleaning products, personal care products, waste reduction, etc..
PRC West participants will receive a FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel.
Please note: Following the CDC’s guidance for reducing COVID transmission, PRC requests that all attendees of indoor, in-person workshops please wear a mask. Virtual webinars and socially-distanced rain barrel pickups are also available.
