'Build Your Own Rain Barrel' workshop in Arlington Nov. 3

ARLINGTON — The Snohomish Conservation District is conducting a "Build Your Own Rain Barrel" workshop on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Pioneer Hall in Arlington.

The class runs from 10 a.m. to noon, and is intended to help homeowners learn how to collect and make use of rainwater.

The class is co-sponsored by the Washington Department of Ecology, and is part of an overall healthy-waters initiative to reduce the effects of polluted run-off on the Stillaguamish River.

Participants should bring their own tools and drills, if they have them.

This is an event for adults and teens, so no young children, please.

The cost to make a rain barrel is $18, and includes the barrel and all the required hardware.

In order to have enough barrels, you must pre-register at http://barrels.eventbrite.com by midnight on Thursday, Nov 1.
