Event Description

Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat storm water pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel!  Cleveland Metroparks, Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District and the Rocky River Watershed Council will host a rain barrel workshop on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, beginning at 6:30 PM at the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Nature Center, located in the Rocky River Reservation at 24000 Valley Parkway, North Olmsted.  Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home.  The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 55-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter.  Registration is required. 


To register, or for more information, call or email Rocky River Watershed Coordinator Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x14 or jbartley@cuyahogaswcd.org


A rain barrel is a container used to collect and store rainwater that would otherwise be lost to runoff and likely diverted to a storm drain. Collected water may then be used to water lawns and gardens. 


Additionally, residents of the Abram Creek and Baldwin Creek subwatersheds are eligible for a 50% rebate on rain barrels through the Headwater Streets program - click here for more information and to see if you qualify.
