Beer Barrels, Rain Barrels and Rain Gardens

June 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn how and why rain barrels and rain gardens at your home or business can reduce flooding and erosion and save you money and your plants and gardens. See how to convert a 55-gallon plastic barrel into an easy-to-use and install rain barrel collecting rain from your roof.  Discover how a small rain garden can improve your landscaping and water runoff. Do it all while enjoying craft brews from local craft beer barrels.

PowerPoint presentation by River Friends Executive Director Jim Pfiffer and Chemung County Soil & Water Conservation District Storm Water Educator Nikole Watts.

$15 at the door. No reservations required. They include one free New York State craft beer or wine, snack foods and a chance to win a door prize. The fees helps River Friends continue to offer educational programs.
