Join Jennifer Stelzer from EnviroCentre as she guides you though the life of a raindrop! Using materials and information from the City of Ottawa's RAIN program, we will learn the path that water takes from the time it lands on your property until it reaches the river! We will explore the wonderful world of downspouts, drains, ditches, and debris! Together we will see good examples of rain gardens, permeable driveways and other solutions to managing rainwater where it lands.

Come learn how you can make your home RAIN and river friendly. Slow it Down, Soak it Up, Keep it Clean!
