During this one day workshop, you will learn about how to utilize native plants that play a critical role in the life cycles of our indigenous wildlife. The workshop will be interactive, and we will discuss how to assess your current garden habitat and add features that will be both visually appealing and ecologically functional. We will also look at low impact methods of managing your landscape to sustain the habitat you have created. This is a hands on workshop. Bring pictures, sketches, or diagrams of your yard for discussion. Graph paper and other materials will be available for participant use.
