Learn about landscaping with native plants


The Clallam Conservation District is offering a free workshop on landscaping with native plants. The workshop will be from 6:30-8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

The workshop is free; however, due to space limitations, pre-registration is required. Phone the Conservation District at 360-775-3747 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 its annual Native Plant Sale.

Clallam Conservation District is taking orders for bare-root native trees and shrubs through Feb. 13. A list of plants, ordering information and order forms are available on the Conservation District webpage: www.clallamcd.org/plant-sale/.

Otherwise, contact the Conservation District by at 360-775-3747 or visit its office located in the Armory Square building in downtown Port Angeles.
