Do your part to protect the James River!
Join the James River Association at our Williamsburg location for a rain barrel workshop!
Rain barrels are made out of heavy-duty plastic 55-gallon drums and connected to the gutter downspouts of residential homes, collecting rain runoff. Stormwater moves quickly over the paved surfaces in urban environments, picking up pollutants on its way to the James River. By collecting water from a rooftop to be used in a garden later, the total amount of contaminants being deposited into the river is decreased!
