A Watershed Awareness/Rain Barrel Workshop will be held next week at the City-County building to teach residents how to protect local rivers and streams by improving watershed conditions on land.

Participants will also receive a voucher for a free 55-gallon rain barrel with installation hardware, as well as learn how to install the barrel and use it to harvest rainwater.

The training is sponsored by the mayor's Propel Pittsburgh Commission,in partnership with the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC).

The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m, Thurs., June 13, in the City-County Building lobby. Cost is $50 per person or $55 per couple; RSVP date is Tuesday, June 11. RSVP by calling Nancy Martin at 412-488-7490, extension 247, or registering online.
