March 10, 2013

The third annual rain barrel workshop will be Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Claud E. Kitchens Outdoor School at Fairview.

More than 100 families have participated in past workshops.

The workshop provides individuals and families an opportunity to complete the simple assembly of a rain barrel kit and learn more about conservation and water recycling. Admission is free; the cost of each rain barrel kit is $40. Registration is requested so sufficient materials will be available for everyone wanting to assemble a rain barrel.

Only cash will be accepted for the purchase of materials.

To register, contact Darlene Reid by email at reiddar@wcps.k12.md.us. The registration deadline is April 8.

To get to the outdoor school, take exit 18 off Interstate 70 at Clear Spring. Go north into Clear Spring on Md. 68 and turn left on U.S. 40. Continue one block and turn right at the traffic light on Martin Street. At the end of Martin Street, turn right on Broadfording Road and travel approximately 100 yards. Turn left on Draper Road. The entrance to the school is about one-third of a mile from the intersection on the left.
