Learn how to assemble a 55-gallon rain barrel. In partnership with the Virginia Cooperative Extension, the City of Newport Waterworks Department and the City of Newport News Recycling Office, The Mariners’ Museum is serving as a site for a “mini” workshop to assemble rain barrels. This one-hour workshop will include guidance and tools for registrants to build a 55-gallon rain barrel. Registrants will need a vehicle large enough to transport their barrel home after the workshop. The fee is ​$60 per 55-gallon rain barrel. ​Registration is required.
