Did you know that a 90-square-foot section of roof can fill a single 55-gallon rain barrel within the first inch of rainfall? We hope you will join us to learn the benefits of collecting rainwater, the positive impacts on the Lagoon, and how to construct a rain barrel. With the purchase of the “Take Home A Rain Barrel” ticket, you will receive a 55-gallon rain barrel to “take home.”
