Our Place in the Watershed
May 20th, 2017
Presented by Eric Lambert, Clark County Clean Water Outreach Specialist
Water is one of our planetís most valuable resources, and understanding how humans interact with its natural cycle is a critical first step to preserving it. Knowing oneís place in a watershed is an effective way to gain appreciation of local water resources and identify how to act locally to protect these resources. In this presentation participants will learn about the quality of their local watersheds, human impact on the water cycle, and things everyone can do for clean water.
Pacific Northwest Natives
June 17th, 2017
Presented by Dixie and Scott Edwards, owners of Watershed Garden Works, a wholesale and retail native plant nursery
Come join us for our discussion of the propagation and uses of Pacific Northwest native plants. We will be covering practical knowledge we have learned in nearly thirty years of growing natives. Topics will include ethnobotany with a focus on edible plants, protocols for collecting seeds and cuttings for propagation, wildlife, rain gardens, drought tolerant plants for landscaping, planting natives with compatible non-native plants, etc.
We encourage questions and always keep our presentations informal. A diverse sampling of plants for sale will be brought for those interested.
