You are invited to join the Georgia Coastal Management Program and the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve (SINERR) in an upcoming build your own rain barrel workshop on May 10, 2017. 

Learn how to ‘Live Positively’ through the Coca-Cola Company’s recycled rain barrel program. Did you know: A rain barrel can save most homeowners 2,000 gallons of water each year which can be used for watering gardens, washing cars and other projects around the house? At the workshop, rain barrel installation, maintenance and safety are discussed, along with instructions for the conversion kit which includes ALL parts needed for installation. Staff will be on hand with the hardware supplies and tools necessary to help you assemble the barrels on-site – ready to take home and use. The conversion kit uses a diverter system which eliminates the need for cutting off gutter downspouts, mosquitoes and over-flow valves. 
The workshop will be held from 12pm-2pm at the Resource Conservation Education Center- Savannah, GA

***Directions and instructions will be sent out prior to workshop***
Registration fee is $30 and includes the 35 gallon drum, instructions and all supplies needed to build your own rain barrel. Please note that due to our agreement with Coca-Cola, if registering for this workshop you must attend the educational presentation and construct your rain barrel at the workshop.
