Here are the other activities ACC Stormwater has on the calendar for October:
Fall Rain Barrel Workshop
Thursday, October 22, 6–7 p.m.
Planning Department Auditorium
We are hosting a free rain barrel workshop. Learn about water pollution, what rain barrels do to reduce it, and how you can use rain barrels in your home. Anyone can attend; however, due to limited supplies, only registered participants will receive a barrel. Please email Anna Truszczynski at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Scary, Oozy, Slimy Day
Saturday, October 24, 4–7 p.m.
Sandy Creek Nature Center
ACC Stormwater will be one of the many presenters at the Scary, Oozy, Slimy Day at Sandy Creek Nature Center. Come spend the evening at the nature center learning about the slippery, the slimy and the misunderstood. Wear your Halloween costume and participate in a variety of games, activities and crafts.
There is a $3 fee for ACC residents and a $5 fee for non-ACC residents. Children under 3 years are free.
Athens Farmers Market
Saturday, October 31, 8 a.m.–noon
Do you know about the pollutants that haunt Athens-Clarke County waterways? Do you want to help keep our waters clean? Have you ever wondered how hard it is to collect litter while in a kayak? Then come by the ACC Stormwater booth at the Athens Farmers Market. We will have information about water pollution in Athens and stream clean-up opportunities, as well as a trivia game and prizes.
