Learn how to conserve and harvest water using a rain barrel. We will help you retrofit a Coca-Cola syrup drum into a catch basin for rain water. All materials will be provided.

This water workshop will have educational activities for all ages. We'll discover the importance of water conservation and explore ways to prevent water pollution through hands-on activities.

The Build-A-Barrel event is co-hosted by Project Rain Barrel - River Network and the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation.

Please note there is a limited supply of 40 rain barrels for the event. Pre-registration is unavailable.
