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, the City of North Olmsted, Rocky River Watershed Council and Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District will host a rain barrel workshop for residents on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 beginning at 6:30 PM at the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Nature Center, located at 24000 Valley Parkway in 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.
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.
To register, or for more information, call Rocky River Watershed Coordinator Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x14.
