Rain Barrels on the Riverfront is back! A three way partnership between the Sierra Club Great Lakes Program, The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and mirainbarrel will return to downtown Detroit @ Gabriel Richard Park, this April 29th. There are many ways to participate. You can buy your barrel right here in advance. Pay online, over the phone, or send us a check. If you are unable to afford the reduced price of $60 to build your barrel you can apply for a scholarship with the Sierra Club by calling (313) 444-3705. If you are unsure if you want to buy a rain barrel, it is free to attend so just show up and watch us build. We will have special guest speakers and demonstrations on how to install your barrel during the workshop, too! So whether you want a rain barrel or are just curious, stop by Rain Barrels on the Riverfront 2016 to help reduce storm water runoff, promote green living and most of all have fun doing it. We will have non-toxic paints and brushes for those who wish to try and learn how to paint their rain barrels at the end of the event.
