Cornell Cooperative Extension Onondaga County presents

Rain Barrel Education Sessions

THE RAIN BARREL PROGRAM IS NOW FULL. Please contact Camille Marcotte at ctm78@cornell.edu or (315) 424-9485 ext.232 to be added to the waitlist. Thank you!

When: Tuesday, July 18th and Wednesday, July 19th

Time: 6:30pm


Rain barrels capture runoff from rooftops during storms to use later to water your lawn or garden. Combined sewers in Syracuse can overflow during wet weather, and the use of rain barrels can help save water and protect Onondaga Lake and its tributaries. Onondaga County residents are eligible to receive a free rain barrel after attending a brief instructional workshop.
