Learn new ways of landscaping to provide privacy or to screen less desirable views as an alternative to fences and single-row evergreens. At 7 p.m. Wed., May 19, at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 East Camano Drive, Mary Archambault, The Plant Farm at Smokey Point, will show how to create attractive multi-layered borders and hedgerows featuring a combination of trees, shrubs and groundcovers. She will bring samples of plants that have multiple-season interest for homeowners and also provide food and habitat for birds.

Mary is very enthusiastic about the topic and excited to come talk to us, since she used to live on Camano. She will bring some examples of plants that meet habitat requirements and show how to create a vertically-layered community of vegetation with similar needs.

This presentation is part of a public education series hosted the third Wednesday of the month by the Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks as part of the Island County watershed project. For information, call 360-387-2236, or email
