Stream Team is an education-to-action program for people interested in protecting and enhancing our local streams, rivers, lakes, and Puget Sound.
The Native Plant Salvage Project was initiated in 1994 to involve Thurston County residents in protecting water resources and improving wildlife habitat in Southern Puget Sound.
Stream Team and WSU Extensions Native Plant Salvage Project will offer a free Naturescaping for Water and Wildlife workshop on
Thursday, Feb. 18
6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Yelm Community Schools Building
107 First Street N.
Workshop participants will learn design ideas to attract more birds, butterflies, amphibians, and beneficial insects to home landscapes while reducing maintenance headaches and protecting water resources. Participants will also receive hardscaping ideas, learn how to minimize lawn areas and discover how to select drought-tolerant plants. A special emphasis will be placed on landscaping on tricky prairie soils. Participants will receive free handouts to help them create more attractive and sustainable landscapes.
The workshop is free, but advanced registration is required.
