The weather will be warming up soon (at least we sure hope so) and now is the time to start capturing that rainwater for outdoor use! We’re excited to announce that our Rain Barrel Workshop is coming back on Saturday, March 22 in partnership with the City of Galveston!
The workshop registration fee is $30 and includes training, a 35 gallon rain barrel (courtesy of Coca-Cola) and your connector kit – everything you need to start conserving water and reducing pollution in the bay. For more information, visit our Rain Barrel Workshop page.
