Learn about landscaping with native plants at workshop

The Clallam Conservation District is offering a free workshop on landscaping with native plants, set for 2:30-4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11, in the Lake Crescent boardroom at the Clallam County PUD headquarter, 104 Hooker Road, Carlsborg.

The workshop is free; however, because of space limitations, pre-registration is required. Call 360-775- 3747 ext. 5 or email info@clallamcd.org to register.

The workshop focuses on environmentally-friendly landscaping principles, with a 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 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 Clallam Conservation District as part of their annual native plant sale, with orders open through Jan. 25.
