Rain Barrel workshop
05/20/2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM| Free
Save water, save money, and save our local waterways all at the same time!
Build your own rain barrel and learn how to install it on your property at this FREE hands-on workshop.
Rain Barrels are a way to implement Baltimore County’s Small Watershed Action Plan (SWAP). The goal is to reduce nutrient, sediment and pollution run-off that enter our local waters and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. Water your garden and lawn, or wash your car with the water that you conserve!
