Event description

Description

Who: Want to learn how to catch rain water from your roof for your garden? All ages are welcome at this hands-on workshop! Minors under 18 require a signed waiver and children under 12 require an accompanying adult unless prior approval is obtained from the workday supervisor.

What: Learn how to design and install rain barrels for your home by helping us install a system at the Animal Services Center in Palo Alto. The rain barrels will capture stormwater saving hundreds of gallons of Tuolumne River water used for landscaping and will also recharge groundwater. Another plus--plants prefer rainwater to municipal water because it is chlorine free!

Where: We'll meet at the Palo Alto Animal Services Center at 3281 East Bayshore Road.

Please bring: A reusable water bottle and dress for outdoor work (sturdy shoes and long pants recommended). We provide gloves, tools, and snacks. Minors under 18 must bring a waiver form signed by a parent.
