WORKSHOPS

MAKE YOUR OWN RAIN BARREL

This workshop is meant for Burlington residents interested in saving water and reducing stormwater runoff, which can carry pollutants to our streams and Lake Champlain. The water you save in a rain barrel can be used for watering lawns and flower gardens, washing your car or tools. Save water, save money, and save our streams all at the same time! In the workshop you will learn how to properly maintain and install a rain barrel and take home your own barrel. This is a Winooski Natural Resource Conservation District workshop sponsored by the City of Burlington Stormwater Program.

Stay tuned for the next Make Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop in 2019!

RETHINK RUNOFF & THE CHITTENDEN COUNTY STREAM TEAM
