Free Sustainable Landscaping Class – January 29

“Naturescaping for Water & Wildlife” will be offered by Stream Team and WSU’s Native Plant Salvage Project on Thursday, January 29, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Yelm. The workshop will teach design ideas to attract more birds, butterflies, amphibians, and beneficial insects to home landscapes while reducing maintenance headaches and protecting water resources. Other topics will include minimizing lawn, hardscaping ideas, and drought-tolerant plants. Participants will receive many free handouts to help them in creating more attractive and sustainable landscapes.

The workshop is free, but advanced registration is required. To register or for more information, please email or call 360-754-3588 ext. 109.
