Jan 21st, 7pm BWH Program: "Native Plants in Your Yard" with Kristin Marshall and Alex Pittman

posted Jan 19, 2015, 3:15 PM by Roxie Rochat

We know that native plants are beneficial in our backyard habitats, but how do we choose what to plant and how do we get it started?  Wednesday, Jan. 21, 7 pm at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 N East Camano Drive  (the Blue Building), Kristin Marshall and Alex Pittman of the Snohomish Conservation District will share with us how to select healthy, appropriate plants for the yard, how to plant them, and how to give them the good start they need to get established and thrive.  They will also introduce several planning tools, native plant nurseries, and other resources available to backyard gardeners planning native planting projects. Kristin, Habitat Restoration Specialist, and Alex, Habitat Restoration Technician, have worked for the past several years on stream and wetland habitat restoration projects in Western Washington and specialize in planning, installation, and maintenance of small and large-scale native planting projects. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.  For information, call 360-387-2236, visit or e-mail
