Rain Barrels on the Riverfront

When: Sat., April 25, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2015

The Sierra Club in partnership with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and MI Rain Barrel is sponsoring a free rain barrel workshop on Detroit's beautiful river walk. Learn to make rain barrels and hook them up to downspouts to capture rain water from roofs for use in gardens, landscaping and other outdoor uses. In addition to saving money on water bills, capturing and using rain water keeps polluted runoff from entering the region's aging sewer system which protects our rivers. Plus, watch an artist from the Oakland Avenue Artist Coalition transform a rain barrel into a work of art!

Price: Workshop is free; Rain Barrel $50
