On Saturday August 14, and Sunday August 15, 2010, the Toronto Zoo is partnering with RainBarrel.ca to offer rain barrels at a discounted price.

Terracotta Rain Barrel

Rain barrels offer many benefits:

  • You can still water your garden with rain barrel water even in droughts
  • Rain barrels capture water during rainstorms and divert it from our over-loaded sewer system
  • You lower your water bill by not using water from your taps.

Promoting rain barrels and water conservation falls in with the Toronto zoo’s mission to promote biodiversity. Proceeds raised through this program will go to biodiversity and conservation projects supported by the zoo.


  • $50/barrel for Zoo members, staff and volunteers who pre-register in advance
  • $55/barrel for general public who pre-register in advance
  • $60/barrel for walk-in purchases on the day of the event

To register for this program, go to http://rainbarrel.ca/torontozoo/

Please bring your receipt with you to the zoo for pick up. Staff, volunteers, and Toronto Zoo members, please bring your ID too.
