Join local landscaping experts on Saturday, May 30 to learn how to save both time and money in your garden, all while protecting the region's most precious resource—water.
"Naturescaping for Water & Wildlife," is a free landscaping class sponsored by Stream Team and WSU Thurston County Extension where you can get water-wise tips, tricks and tools from seasoned horticulture experts Linda Andrews, a professional landscape designer, and Erica Guttman of Washington State University. Topics include landscape planning and design, managing drainage, slopes and other trouble spots, attracting birds and butterflies, and selecting water-wise plants for all four seasons, plus lots more water-wise wisdom.
The May 30 naturescaping class will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Olympia. A classroom session will be followed by a field trip to local private gardens, and bus transportation will be provided. The class is free, but advance registration is required as space is limited.
