Looking for a simple way to conserve water and do something good for the environment? Why not install a rain barrel...or two! The St. Mary's County Government and University of Maryland Extension Program are pleased to offer a workshop on the practical uses for rain barrels and how they reduce the impact of runoff on our local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. This workshop will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Agricultural Services Center conference room.
This is a hands on workshop! Participants will have the opportunity to construct and take home their own rain barrels and learn the techniques for later installation. Pre-registration is required, as space is limited. Attendance is Free - $73 based on rain barrel purchase. For more details on rain barrel options, or to register online for this event, please visit www.ter.ps/rbMay2016
(*additional service fees associated with online registration). To ensure rain barrel availability, please register by Friday, May 13, 2016.
