Catch the Rain - a collection of interactive hands-on, rainwater harvesting activities for youth can now be accessed online. Collecting rainwater has been practiced throughout the world for thousands of years. There is a renewed and growing interest in rainwater harvesting in the United States as parts of the country experience periods of drought and municipalities work to manage stormwater. Where legally allowable, rainwater harvesting offers people opportunities to conserve other water resources by using rainwater to water landscapes and gardens, flush toilets, and, with purification, for drinking, cooking, and washing. Enjoy exploring the activities.
