Workshop keynote speaker Jan. 12 at noon is Douglas Tallamy, author of the national best seller, “Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants.” Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can—and must—take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope. “Nature’s Best Hope” is the name of his latest book.
Jan. 13, noon, Jim Tolstrup, director of the High Plains Environmental Center in Loveland, Colorado, will talk about “Successful Gardening with Native Plants of the High Plains.” Centerra, the 3000-acre mixed-use development where HPEC is located has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as the first Wildlife Habitat Community in Colorado. Jim will share favorite native plants, information on how to grow them, and specific wildlife benefits that the plants provide.
Jan. 14, noon “Winter Sowing Plant-Along” – Laramie County Master Gardener Michelle Bohanan will present an explanation and demonstration of the winter sowing technique, a way to start native plants in protected mini greenhouses (like milk jugs) left outdoors in winter. No artificial heat or light required.
