Spring 2022 Workshops

Natural Yard Care Workshop Webpage Header

This year we partnered with the experts at Tilth Alliance again to offer Bothell residents a series of spring Natural Yard Care workshops. 2022's workshops are over, but you can still access the recorded versions, presentation slides, and related resources.

Beautify and Care for Your Streamside Landscape

April 13, 7 - 8:30 p.m.

More than 70% of our planet is covered by water, so it’s no surprise there are lots of streams in Bothell. If you live near one of them, join this class to learn how to create and care for a healthy streamside environment that protects natural resources. From soil to slopes to native plants, a number of components work together to create and enhance this unique environment in the Pacific Northwest.

Attract Wildlife to Your Streamside Property

April 20, 7 - 8:30 p.m.

Join this workshop to learn how to create an inviting streamside landscape that attracts and protects wildlife. Streamside landscapes in an urban environment are unique and require different management techniques than more terrestrial environments. You’ll also learn how to improve water quality by keeping pollution out of local streams and how to manage common pests and weeds without using chemicals.
