Landowners interested in learning more about managing their
western North Carolina land are encouraged to attend the Introduction to Native
Landscaping and Homes in the Forest workshop, to be held at the Watauga County
Agricultural Conference Center on July 20.
Participants will learn, among other things, the basics of
creating home rainwater gardens to help with storm water drainage. The cost is
$25, but you can add a spouse or other family member for $15. The registration
fee includes lunch. The course is sponsored by several organizations, including
Watauga County Soil and Water Conservation District and the North Carolina
Division of Forest Resources. Early registration is encouraged by calling Amy
Garascia at the Pisgah Ranger Station at 828-877-3350.
