Conservation District to hold rain barrel workshops

Rain barrels such as this one help manage stormwater runoff and flooding while providing plenty of water for gardens and other household tasks.
The Greene County Conservation District, in cooperation with Waynesburg Borough, will be holding rain barrel workshops on the evenings of Thursday, July 25 and Thursday August 1. 

These workshops are open to all Greene County residents and are free to attend. Participants in the workshop will construct their own rain barrel from materials provided by the Conservation District. 

While the workshop and rain barrel are both free, space is limited, and registration is required. 

For more information or to register, call the Conservation District at 724-852-5278, or e-mail jzinn@co.greene.pa.us.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. (PACD) through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
