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.
The last day to register is March 12 and there is a limit of 25 per class. For questions, contact Stacy Aleksich at email@example.com.
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.
