Landscaping for Conservation
Help out the environment by letting nature do your gardening. Join Education Director Matthew Collins with Tryon Creek State Park for a Landscaping for Conservation workshop and learn how your garden can function more like the natural system surrounding us. You will learn about your garden from the ground up starting with the soil and its complex role supporting plants. You will also learn about gardening with native plants which use less water and dont require expensive fertilizers and pesticides. This program is a great way to learn more about the Backyard Habitat Certification Program, a partnership between the Friends of Tryon Creek, Columbia Land Trust, and Audubon Society of Portland. This is a free program for adults but enrollment is limited, pre-registration is requested. Online registration available at NatureFind.
