Registration is now open for a rain barrel workshop.
Birch Bay Watershed and Aquatic Resources Management (BBWARM) District and the Birch Bay Water and Sewer District (BBWSD) are sponsoring the workshops.
Collecting rainwater from your roof is a cheap and effective way to water a garden, build a reserve water supply and save money on summer water bills. Participants in the workshop will receive a free 55-gallon rain barrel made from recycled plastic.
BBWARM will hold two workshops: Wednesday, March 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Birch Bay Water and Sewer District, and Saturday, March 28 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Blaine Senior Center.
Space is limited to 20 households per workshop. Visit bbwarm.whatcomcounty.org to register.
