BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Did you know that during a one-inch rainstorm 623 gallons will run off a 1,000 square foot roof? Wouldn’t it be great to collect some of that water and use it to water your gardens or wash the car?  Sign up at NJ Audubon to make your own rain barrel and save water at home.  The deadline to sign up has been extended to April 13. 

There will be a virtual information portion on Thursday night, April 15, followed by the actual building workshop on Saturday, April 17, with two different times offered. Links to the two sessions below:
