River Action 60-gallon rain barrels available now

Every gallon of rainwater collected keeps it out of our already swollen rivers and streams, and potentially out of your basement or business. Every gallon counts. The 60-gallon recycled food-grade barrel includes a lid, mosquito netting, standard downspout diverter (2" x 3"), spigot and two overflow attachments.

Ride and Seek Returned for 2022

Ride & Seek returned for another year, and many groups participated in the outdoor scavenger hunt adventure throughout all of June.

Ride and Seek began as a safe way to get families out and enjoying our shared Riverway when the Covid Pandemic forced us to postpone our annual Ride the River event.

Because of so much positive feedback, Ride & Seek will continue alongside future Ride The River events.
