Gardening with Nature: Landscaping for Streamside Landowners

In the first of this year's Gardening with Nature workshops, you will learn about enhancing the beauty, ecological function, and water quality of our streams by planting native trees and shrubs. Trees are vitally important companions to streams: they filter pollution, stabilize banks, keep water temperature cool and provide nutrients and habitat for fish and other aquatic life.  Planting buffers with trees and shrubs is one of the most cost-effective solutions to improve water quality. Kate Austin, Grassroots Field Specialist with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, will discuss the many ecological and water quality benefits of planting these buffers. As a plant lover and landscape designer, Kate will also talk about many species of native plants that can bring color, texture, & seasonal interest to your streamside landscape.  

Gardening with Nature Workshops - Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay to bring you a series of eight workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Cost per (March-Oct) workshop $5.00 each. Registration for all programs is now open. To Register Contact: Penn State Extension, Cumberland County - 717-240-6500 or 1-888-697-0371 x6500  Sponsored by Penn State Master Gardeners.
