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.

Upcoming Classes

Natural Pruning

March 17, 2018
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presented by Allen Wilson, Retired Professor of Landscape Horticulture

What do you want your plants to look like after they regrow following pruning? We will discuss and illustrate the principles of natural pruning. The focus will be on what to expect from making different kinds of pruning cuts to preserve the natural shape and density of plants.

After the classroom presentation we will go outside in small groups to practice newly learned principles on plants in the garden. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

Bring your hand pruners and if possible loppers and pruning saws that we can share.
