Spring 2021 Workshops

NYC - Resource Webpage Header Spring 2021

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

Workshop sponsors, presenter, and target audience

City of Bothell and Snohomish Conservation District partnered with Tilth Alliance to offer this year's workshops. The target audience for these workshops included City of Bothell residents whose property is next to North Creek or one of its tributaries. This year's workshops were funded in part by Washington State Department of Ecology.

Thank you to everyone who joined us this year. We hope to see you again for our next series of workshops in spring 2022!

Putting the Right Plant in the Right Place

April 14, 7 – 8:30 p.m. 

Living next to a stream or wetland proves to be a unique environment when planning your garden. Join us as we discuss native plants that help attract wildlife, stabilize stream banks, require no chemicals and little maintenance, and provide other benefits to streamside landscapes. This class is aimed at those living along a stream or waterway, but much of the native plant information we’ll cover can be applied to almost any kind of garden in the Pacific Northwest.

Managing Pests and Weeds Along Waterways

Come learn about common problems that can be found along streams and waterways and why ignoring them can lead to bigger problems, including slope erosion and destabilization. We’ll show you different ways to remove and manage these problems without using chemicals.
