The Saturday afternoon presentation will provide an overview of rainwater harvesting: techniques—active and passive methods of water collection, history, best management practices, and applicability to conserving rainfall as a natural resource.
The Sunday workshop is geared towards do-it-yourself types who want to learn about installing their own rainwater harvesting systems. During lunch there will be an opportunity to meet individually to discuss your rainwater plans and projects.
