Conservation district manager Joe Holtrop is the instructor for both the course and the field workshops.
The first of the free field workshops will be this weekend.
One workshop will be held in conjunction with the Dungeness River Festival at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.
It will be at 3 p.m. Friday.
A second workshop will be at Robin Hill Farm Park from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The third field workshop will be at the Dungeness Recreation Area from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 5.
No fee is charged for these field workshops, but due to space limitations, pre-registration is required. To register, phone the conservation district at 360-452-1912, ext. 5.
The natural landscape course follows permaculture design principles to help participants develop their own sustainable landscape plans for their property, Holtrop said.
Through a combination of lectures and field trips, course participants are instructed on how to develop landscape designs suited to the unique ecological conditions of their properties.
The focus is a naturalistic landscape style, with special emphasis on water conservation, stormwater management, wildlife habitat enhancement and minimal maintenance.
The course includes three Monday evening classes and three Friday field trips.
The evening classes will be from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 7, 14 and 21 at the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
Field trips will be on the afternoons of Oct. 11, 18 and 25.
A $25 registration fee covers the cost of materials and facilities rental.
To register, phone the conservation district.
