Get advice during the first half of this workshop on how to enhance your wetland yard with native plants and other landscaping features that add beauty, provide habitat and help to protect water quality. Learn about rules that affect what landowners can and can’t do with wetlands on their properties. Discover resources to help you with water-friendly gardening projects including incentive grants, free site visits, garden designs and plant lists.
In the second half of this workshop, participants will head outside to explore the wetlands at Oakdale’s Discovery Center. This is a hands-on opportunity to learn about unique plants and animals that are found in wetlands and practice identifying native and invasive plants you will find along the way.
Hosted by the City of Oakdale; South Washington, Ramsey-Washington Metro, and Valley Branch Watershed Districts; and the East Metro Water Resource Education Program.
