Webinars and Workshops are available for Southeastern and Southwestern PA. Please view the webinars and workshops for your geographic area.
PRC and Eastern Delaware County Stormwater Collaborative are partnering to present a free Stormwater Management webinar. Attendees will learn about the problems associated with stormwater runoff, ways to conserve water in their homes, and watershed friendly landscaping techniques. The workshop will also cover the basics of how to install and maintain a rain barrel.
Rain barrels will be provided to the first 50 registrants.
In order to receive a rain barrel, you must attend the webinar and be able to pick-up the rain barrel the day after the webinar from 4 – 6 PM at Morton Borough Hall. To promote social distancing, pick-up time slots will be offered every 30 minutes. A link to sign-up for one of the time slots will provided with your registration confirmation.
Webinar and rain barrels are provided free of charge through grant funding from the PA DEP Growing Greener Grants Program.
UPCOMING DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED
Description: Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water. They supply non-chlorinated water for gardening, connecting to your downspout to collect and store rain water from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and rivers.
Register for this webinar to learn about the problems associated with stormwater run-off and learn watershed-friendly landscaping techniques and ways to conserve water in your home.
Participants in Southwestern PA will receive a FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel.
COST: $80, includes webinar and one rain barrel
