    Three rain barrels made by using grain bins from a local brewery are set up to catch rain coming from gutters. The Snohomish County Conservation District plans to hold classes in Stanwood and on Camano Island to teach people how to make their own rain barrels.

    Five-year-old Saoirse McNulty fills her watering can from a backyard rain barrel in Seattle. Rain barrels can help people store water from rainy days to use for gardens and lawns in drier times.

Learn how to build your own rain barrel -- and then take it home with you -- at one of two classes to be held next month on Camano Island and in Stanwood.
Rain barrels can help you collect and store water for your garden or lawn from wet months for those days when it's sunny and dry.
Both classes are planned for March 16.
The first class is at 10 a.m. at the Camano Multi-Purpose Center, 141 NE Camano Drive. The second class is planned for 2 p.m. at the Stillaguamish Grange, 6521 Pioneer Highway (at the Stanwood-Camano fairgrounds). Both classes are hands-on and the cost is $20 for the barrel and fixtures.
Some tools will be provided, or you can bring your own.
People must register at http://camanobarrels.eventbrite.com for the Camano class or at http://stanwoodbarrels.eventbrite.com for the Stanwood class.
The last day to register is March 12 and there is a limit of 25 per class. For questions, contact Stacy Aleksich at stacy@snohomishcd.org.
The classes are sponsored by Snohomish Conservation District with a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology to help residents conserve and protect water.
