Since spring 2009, the BCMSHR WRAPS project has handed out nearly 3500 55-gallon rain barrels. With the always increasing need to protect water resources, the BCMSHR WRAPS project is offering for rain barrels for only $26.

These barrels offer many benefits to you, your town, and your landscape. Remember, rain barrels are not a new idea, just a forgotten practice.
