Every Drop Counts

It only makes sense that Harris County residents begin to harvest water after all the rainfall this spring. On September 17, Webster residents can get in on the Galveston Bay Rain Barrel program, and start conserving water and improving rainwater related problems during a two-hour workshop.

The workshop taught by Galveston Bay Foundation employees and the registration fee includes workshop admission, a recycled rain barrel, and a RainRecycle Connector Kit. Pre-registration with an advanced payment of $35 is required. The workshop will be held at Webster Civic Center. All purchases are final, and workshop attendance is needed to receive a rain barrel kit. The rain barrels can be decorated however the owner would like, and be attached to downspouts to reduce runoff into storm drains. Water can be used to water a garden, wash a car, and more!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., and register at www.galvbay.org/rainbarrel. For more information contact Sarah Cunningham from Galveston Bay Foundation at 281.332.3381 or scunningham@galvbay.org.
