Due to the overwhelming response to the first two rain barrel workshops, the Raincatchers and Alabama Cooperative Extension are holding a third workshop on June 27. Pre-registration is required. To register, send an email to Tia Gonzales at gonzats@auburn.edu.

Everything you need to build your rain barrel is included in the cost of the workshop, $25. There will be two designs available, one for houses with gutters and one for those without.


Alabama Water Watch is offering a series of workshops starting February. The workshops will be conducted in Upchurch Hall, Auburn University and participants can receive a certificate which carries Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credit with the university.
