BIIJIIBIISAAN; ANIMIBIISAAN (‘Rain Comes: Rain Goes Away”)

Do you ever wonder what YOU can do to tackle climate change? Yes, it would be great to have superhero powers, but not many of us are so lucky. 

Capturing rainwater in urban environments can prevent erosion and reduce stormwater runoff. Instead of turning on the faucet, use captured water to water flower beds or vegetable gardens. The climate and environmental programs at 1854 are distributing 20 rain barrels again this spring. They are available to Bois Forte and Grand Portage band members FREE OF CHARGE.

Criteria:

  • one rain barrel per person

  • first come, first served

  • arrange to pick-up a the 1854 Duluth-office

To reserve a barrel, contact Tyler Kaspar, Environmental Biologist This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the office: 218-722-8907
