Learn how to landscape with native plants

The Clallam Conservation District is offering workshops on landscaping with native plants this month, with one session in Port Angeles and another in Sequim.

Workshops are 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and 3:35-5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, 2151 West Hendrickson Road.

The sessions focus on environmentally friendly landscaping principles, with special emphasis on the use of native trees and shrubs. Cultural requirements, landscaping values, aesthetic attributes and environmental and wildlife habitat benefits of trees and shrubs native to the North Olympic Peninsula will also 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.

The workshops are free; however, because of space limitations, pre-registration is required. Register at clallamcd.org, by calling the Conservation District at 360-775-3747 x5, or by emailing to info@clallamcd.org.

Many of the plants discussed during the workshops are sold by the Conservation District as part of their annual Native Plant Sale. Orders are being taken for bare-root native trees and shrubs through Jan. 27.

Descriptions of the plants offered for sale, ordering information and online ordering is available at webpage clallamcd.org/plant-sale. There is also an order form on the website that can be mailed in.
