Living Green Olympia: Free Workshops in Olympia!

Free Workshops in Olympia!

If you read this soon you will still be in time for one free workshop that is being held tonight (October 22nd) from 6:30 - 8:30 PM at Griffin Fire Hall, 3707 Steamboat Loop Rd.  It will include speakers from WSU Extension, South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group, and the Thurston & Mason Conservation districts.  The topic is assistance that is available to landowners who want to learn more about controlling erosion, stormwater managment, enhanced fish and wildlife habitat & elimination of invasive weeds. 

I have attended classes put on by WSU Extension and they are outstanding resource people to help with a multitude of questions about maintaining waterfront properties, slopes and such.  Their office number is 360-427-9670.

The other workshop is tomorrow night from 6:30 - 9:30 PM or Saturday 10-2:00 in Rochester, on the topic of learning to landscape your property with habitat enhancement in mind.  (As long as this doesn't include enhancing my habitat to attract more moles I think it would be great!)  There will be hands on experience for participants to learn how to revegetate using cuttings and what to do with their slopes and difficult soils.  Registration is required - call 360-754-3355 x 7902 & there is also a free van pool that will go from Thurston Co. courthouse.

So cool to have such great resources available to us in the Olympia area!!
