This spring the Maryland Science Center presents a Clean and Green Workshop Series. Winter is coming to an end, the days are getting longer, and now is a great time to start prepping your home and garden for the year ahead. Each workshop will be hands-on and include instruction, supplies, and a related project. Participants will leave with a new skill set and a completed product.

Join Blue Water Baltimore and build your very own rain barrel. Learn how a simple food-grade barrel can be converted into a water-collecting and Bay-saving machine. Rain Barrels hold 60 gallons of rainwater and fill up in minutes in a typical Baltimore storm. All parts and tools will be provided. The barrels are just over 3 feet tall and are 2 feet wide so please make sure you have room to take home your barrel.
