Clallam Conservation District is offering a free workshop on landscaping with native plants. The workshop will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11 at the Clallam County PUD – Lake Crescent Boardroom at 104 Hooker Road in Sequim.
The workshop is free; however, due to space limitations, pre-registration is required. Call the Conservation District at 360-775-3747 ext. 5 or email [email protected] to register.
The workshop will focus on environmentally friendly landscaping principles, with special emphasis on the use of native trees and shrubs. Topics such as the cultural requirements, landscaping values, aesthetic attributes, and environmental and wildlife habitat benefits of trees and shrubs native to the North Olympic Peninsula will be covered. In addition, workshop participants will receive tips on designing a more sustainable landscape, learn how to care for bare-root trees and shrubs and prepare for planting. Many of the plants discussed during the workshop are sold by the Conservation District as part of their annual Native Plant Sale.
