Bring Green Infrastructure to Your Home with RMSC’s Rain Barrel Workshops

    WHAT: The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) is hosting a Rain Barrel workshop at the Museum on Saturday, June 19, and Saturday, June 26. Event attendees will discover how they can utilize green infrastructure by creating their own rain barrels to take home. The RMSC supplies all materials needed to create the rain barrels. 

    Rain barrels are a great way to collect rainwater to be repurposed for lawn and garden watering, saving you money and resources. Water usage increases by approximately 30 percent in the summer months due to watering gardens, filling pools, and more. Rain barrels are a great way to challenge that percentage and maintain a cost-effective process.

    Spots are limited and attendees must register in advance to participate.

    Check for more details and to register. 



    Workshops will be hosted on two consecutive Saturdays, June 19 and June 26, at 11am.


    This is a family-friendly event and visitors of all ages are encouraged to participate.
