Waterwise and Firesmart Workshop

Join us for a presentation with RDNO Water Sustainability Coordinator Jennifer Miles for a very relevant discussion on reducing water use and keeping safe from fire. Participants will learn how to use the FireSmart zone method for choosing where to plant, you will also learn to select plants that are WaterWise and FireSmart, and she’ll give maintenance tips to keep your yard looking good without using a lot of water. This summer is a good reminder to be pre-pared and make smart choices for everyone’s health and safety! Pre-registration is required. Limited space available in our classroom setting.
