Rain Barrel Workshop 10/08/2022
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am$45.00
The EAC’s rain barrel workshops teach attendees about the importance of rain water catchment in preventing storm water runoff pollution! Attendees will build their rain barrel, and learn how to locate, install, and set it up. We’ll also provide tips to transition downspouts for rain barrel usage, and information on proper winter storage.
Throughout our workshop there will be ample opportunity for Q & A with EAC staff, who can answer questions about beneficial environmental impacts as well as practical everyday use of rain barrels.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a sound understanding of the individual and community benefits of having a rain barrel, and can be confident about next steps to install, use and care for one.
Additional workshop dates: Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 5:30-6:30p.m.
