For adults. A rain barrel is placed under a gutter’s downspout next to a house to collect rain
water from the roof. The barrel holds about 50 gallons of water which can be used to water your
lawn, flowers, shrubs, and trees. Rain water harvesting can help save money on your water bill,
prevent basement flooding, and reduce flooding in local rivers and streams. Participants will be
shown step-by-step how to build their own rain barrel and learn how to install it at home.
