Conservation district offers free landscaping workshop

Hike includes discussion on native trees and shrubs

Clallam Conservation District offers a free field workshop on landscaping with native plants from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the Dungeness Recreation Area.

Conservation District Manager Joe Holtrop will conduct the workshop. He has a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in landscape architecture and has conducted these workshops since 1990.

The workshop focuses on the identification of more than 25 native trees and shrubs while walking about two miles of Recreation Area trails.

Holtrop will lead discussions on the plant species’ cultural requirements, aesthetic attributes, and environmental and wildlife habitat benefits.

Tips on incorporating native plants into landscape are included.

Space is limited, so preregistration is required. Call the Clallam Conservation District at 452-1912 ext. 5 for more information and to register.
