Get your very own LRN Rain Barrels!

 

Rain Barrels are a great way to reduce stormwater runoff from your property and utilize the rain water for your flowers, shrubs, trees, lawns, indoor plants or koi ponds. You can also use the water to wash your car or pet, rinse your feet, tools, or muddy/sandy boots or sandals.

Stormwater runoff, and the bacteria, toxins and sediments that it picks up and carries, is the number one source of pollution in the Lynnhaven River.

A rain barrel is easy to install on your downspout. It will have a spigot on the front for a watering can and/or a soaker hose and an overflow spout at the top. The intake at the top is screened to prevent mosquito infestation. You can install a single barrel or connect multiple barrels.

*Basic installation includes: leveling the location (any shrub removal extra fees apply), modifying existing downspout, cleanup of location and installation of platforms extra fees apply.
 
The Moby is different from the Ivy in a few ways. It is manufactured from a much denser  material and is substantially heavier than the Ivy. It also offers 15 gallons more storage capacity and the spigot is solid brass.

Tidewater Film and Discussion


Third in our Conversations about Climate Change Series

June 14, 6:30 PM, Brock Environmental Center

“What’s our plan? And how do we become a part of the solution?

We have the knowledge and the technology. How can we export good ideas to the rest of the world?”

The film Tidewater raises all of these issues and more. A terrific film about the challenges and opportunities that confront our region. How do we choose to move forward? Watch a trailer here:https://vimeo.com/213262018

Join us on June 14th to view the film followed by a facilitated discussion. Free and open to all, but please register at Office@LRNow.org or by calling, 757-962-5398.
