Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)–July 6, 2010. You’ve seen them on your Park Forest vehicle sticker, at the Aqua Center gazebo and for sale at the Farmers Market. Rain barrels can save you money while helping the environment.

If you already own a rain barrel or would like to use one and are not sure how to start, ME4E will show you how to make the most out of rain barrels on Saturday, July 24 from Noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Wetland Discovery Center (located in the northwest corner of the Park Forest Aqua Center, 30 N. Orchard).

No gutters — no problem — plant a rain garden. We will take a peek at a newly created rain garden just outside the Wetland Discovery Center.

There is a fee of $8 for adults. Register at the Recreation & Parks Department at Park Forest Village Hall or by calling 708-748-2005.
