Extensive urban growth over the last few decades has had a significant impact on habitat that birds and other wildlife once called home. You, as a homeowner, have a unique opportunity to curtail this loss of habitat by creating your own backyard wildlife sanctuary.

NatureScaping of Southwest Washington is a non-profit, all volunteer, educational organization whose goal is to educate and encourage homeowners to make their yards and gardens a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.

Membership above the $20 level will support maintaining the gardens fencing, irrigation, educational materials and more.

10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presented by Brad Mead, Invasive Species Coordinator, Clark Public Utilities-Environmental Services

Come learn about the many wonderful qualities of using native plants instead of your typical home improvement store fare. With a bit of work and a lot of love, you can create a miniature wildlife refuge in your own backyard! Be serenaded by the buzzing of bumble bees, the chirping of chickadees and the squeaking of (grey) squirrels. Enjoy beautiful plants with minimal upkeep, chemicals and irrigation.

An Herbal Vinegar Primer

June 15, 2019

Erin Harwood and Eloyce O'Connor Co-Owners of Garden Delights Herb Farm

Do you know all of the many ways herbs can be used? Join the "delightful" gals from our favorite herb farm as we discuss different herbs for four of the different uses-culinary, body care, household and medicinal. Learn how to craft herbal vinegars pairing various vinegar and herb varieties (hopefully herbs from your own garden) for specific purposes. We'll also turn an herbal vinegar into a healing oxymel (which are herbal vinegars with honey for health). Includes demos, tastings, and much more!
