Water presentation on tap in Sequim

A presentation called “Water in the Age of Climate Change” is set for 10-11 a.m. Saturday, June 1, at the Clallam County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, 2711 Woodcock Road.

Followed by a question-and-answer session, the presentation is free and no registration is required.

Water use and conservation in the time of climate change is a current and ongoing issue and changes in hydrology of the Dungeness River play an important part in the economics and quality of life on the Olympic Peninsula, presentation organizers say.

Master Gardener John Stednick will touch on this issue and set the stage for irrigation demands. Master Gardener Susan Kalmar brings the issue into residents’ yards and presents ideas on how to install, repair and manage a simple drip-water system. The presentation also features reference materials, mock-ups and a demonstration to encourage gardeners to learn how to save time and water.

Call 360-565-2679 for more information.
