Controlling storm water prevents flooding in town and pollution in streams and rivers. Come to a rain barrel workshop to see how your house can be a part of the solution! We will explain the dangers of uncontrolled storm water, how a rain barrel works, and how to assemble them. PRE-REGISTER to be one of the ten lucky people to take home a pre-assembled rain barrel, or one of the ten lucky people to assemble one at the workshop.
Stay at Palatine Park after the rain barrel workshop for an Earth Day festival with information tables from other groups, food, and live music.
Register by emailing MBragg@fairmontwv.gov or calling 304-366-0540.
Groups represented at the Earth Day festival following the workshop will include Fairmont State University's Solar Army, FSU's Concrete Canoe team, FSU's stream rehabilitation group, FSU's recycling group, food trucks, and others!
