Workshop details landscaping with area’s native plants

Joe Holtrop, Clallam Conservation District’s executive director, details how home gardeners can incorporate native plants into their landscapes at noon Thursday, July 24, in the Clallam County commissioners meeting room of the county courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

Holtrop discusses how native gardens help create more sustainable landscapes that require less water, less maintenance and contribute to the natural habitats of native fauna. Holtrop has undergraduate and master’s degrees in landscape architecture and a master’s degree in adult education. He has been giving presentations, leading workshops and teaching courses on sustainable landscaping for 25 years.

This presentation is part of the Green Thumbs Garden Tips brown bag series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month in Port Angeles.

The educational series provides home gardeners with education on gardening topics relevant to planting and maintaining sustainable gardens and landscapes in Clallam County.

Attendees may bring a lunch. The presentations are free and open to the public; however, donations to help offset copying costs for handouts are accepted.
