Conservation district to host two native plant workshops

PORT ANGELES — How to use native plants in landscaping will be presented at two Clallam Conservation District webinars this week.

The first webinar, “Beautify Your Farm with Native Plants,” is from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Conservation planners discuss plant selection for creation of hedgerows, windbreaks and privacy screens on farms, and protection of both new and existing plantings from horses and livestock.

The use of native plants to enhance habitat for pollinators, birds, bats and wildlife also will be covered.

The second webinar, “Planting and Maintaining a Native Landscape,” is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday.

District manager Kim Williams will discuss basic site analysis, an overview of common native trees and shrubs, plant selection, bare-root plant care, planting tips and maintenance.

Time is allotted for questions and answers to help participants choose plants from the conservation district’s annual plant sale that are the best fit for their land.

Both webinars are free; however, registration is required through Clallam Conservation District’s website,
