The Pure Water Partners (PWP) program is pleased to announce a virtual Naturescaping workshop on April 27th and May 4th.  This year’s Naturescaping workshop will be focused on the Holiday Farm Fire and its impacts on soil and vegetation, controlling invasives post-fire, and considerations for replanting. It will also include information on Firewise landscaping.

Learn how to use native plants to save time, money, and energy on your yard while protecting water quality and enhancing fish and wildlife habitat.  Learn how planting the ‘right plant’ in the ‘right place,’ helps to control invasive species, reduce chemical use, build healthy soil, and more. 


This year’s workshop will be virtual and broken up into two one-hour sessions.

Session 1, April 27th: Introduction to the Holiday Farm Fire, soil and vegetation impacts; Controlling Invasive plants post-fire.

Session 2, May 4th: Firewise landscaping; Naturescaping Basics (selecting native plants, considerations for where to place them, etc.).

Each session will conclude with references to additional resources, and presenters will stay on for an extra 30 minutes to answer questions.

Sign up and attend one or both sessions! You will receive a link to the Zoom meeting via email ahead of the event. 

Hosted by:  Eugene Water & Electric Board, McKenzie Watershed Council, the Upper Willamette Soil & Water Conservation District, and Oregon Department of Forestry.
