The Conservation Foundation will be presenting their Conservation @ Home program and having a discussion about Rain Barrels and Rain Gardens at City Hall in the Council Chambers on Wednesday, April 13th at 7 pm. Please come and join us to learn more about rain barrels and what makes a rain garden as well as how to certify your home with Conservation @ Home.
About Rain Barrels
Rain barrels are simply large containers that capture rainwater at the end of your downspout, which you can then use to water plants, wash your car and further reduce your water bill while also reducing polluted runoff from getting to our rivers and streams.
