Fri, July 21, 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM MDT
Meet some of the local shrubs that can brighten your home landscape without additional water (once established). We'll focus on the multi-stemmed beauties with three seasons of interest. Some will have four! This class is for you if you want to get to know some of the beautiful Colorado shrubs but don't know how to get started. We will go on an approximately mile long hike in addition to exploring the Carson Nature Center's Native Garden allowing you to see at least 25 shrubs worthy of consideration as part of your home landscape. No experience necessary - newcomers to Colorado welcomed and encouraged!
