What’s one of the simplest, high-impact ways to save water and help protect our watershed? Using a rain barrel.
For conservation and for pollution prevention, installing a rain barrel to collect and store rainwater for use on your lawn and gardens is a simple but powerful way to make a difference for the Mississippi River.
Join us on August 6, from 6 – 7:30 pm, just off of the Vermillion River at Bachman’s Cedar Acres Nursery for this ‘make & take’ rain barrel building workshop! Thanks to Great Lakes Coca-Cola of Eagan, Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) has used syrup containers for participants to turn into rain barrels. During the course of this workshop, participants will be provided with the necessary parts ($35 per kit) and guided through the process of converting these containers into allies for a cleaner Mississippi River.
