COSA Connect with Colorado’s Native Plants

Connect with Colorado’s Native Plants

Due to popular demand there will be another DIY Landscaping With Natives class on September 9th. In times of drought, it’s important to remember that sustainable landscaping can save 40% or more of a home’s water use according to a study in Colorado Springs. See for yourself the benefits of sustainable landscaping using natives by checking out this new 2-minute video.

Please mark September 25th in your calendar and register for a lunchtime Historic Uses of Native Plants webinar. This unique statewide webinar taught by Susan Carter, Mesa County’s Horticulture Agent and a Native Plant Master Program Leader, will discuss historic uses of Colorado’s native plants including uses by the Ute people.

Also, please save a date in your calendar for NPM’s last classes of the season offered in October Discover! Native Shrubs for Your Landscape and Collecting and Sowing Wildflower Seeds.
