In partnership with the Ontario County Soil & Water Conservation District, the FLM is pleased to offer a rain barrel workshop at the FLM Campus. OCSWD’s Alaina Robarge will start with a presentation on stormwater, the importance of water conservation, how to install the rain barrel at home, maintenance and winter storage of the barrel, and a demonstration on how to build the barrel. Program participants will be putting the rain barrel together, with assistance from the Ontario County SWCD. The Rain Barrels are 55 gallon plastic food-grade barrels that will have pre-drilled inlet, outlet, and overflow holes.

The $50 fee covers the cost of materials for one rain barrel. Bring your family to make one rain barrel together or each make your own. Cost is per rain barrel, not per participant.

Participants interested in this event and others in The Earth and I 4-part program series are invited to register at www.FingerLakesMuseum.org.
