El Niño is likely to be heading our way this winter, bringing upwards of 30 inches of rain to Los Angeles! Our city, sealed in concrete, sends dirty, trash-filled water straight to the ocean—extending the drought and harming local wildlife. But there’s another way: rainwater harvesting! Rainwater harvesting minimizes flooding, decreases ocean pollution and stores water to give trees and plants a drink, even when the rain is long gone. Are you ready to be a part of the solution? Clockshop is partnering with Rain Barrels International and TreePeople to host a rain barrel sale and distribution. Pre-order and pay for your barrels through Rain Barrels International’s website, and pick them up at the Bowtie Project.
Be sure to apply for a rebate on water barrels through the Metropolitan Water District here: https://mwd.conservationrebates.com/.
TreePeople will be offering installation demonstrations during the distribution, and a watershed site tour of the Bowtie Project from 11:00 – 12:00
There are 199 spaces available. Event capacity information is updated every hour on TreePeople’s website.
