Water-Wise Wednesdays Workshop Series

Free Workshop Series on Water Conservation Techniques for your Landscape - Second through Fifth Wednesdays in March at the Woodland Community and Senior Center from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

February 19, 2016

The City of Woodland and the Yolo County Resource Conservation District invite you to a series of free workshops the second through fifth Wednesdays in March. The workshop series will cover various landscape water conservation techniques, including topics on lawn conversion, lessons learned from professionals, efficient irrigation, rainwater capture and retention, and how to maintain a drought-tolerant landscape.

The workshops will be held at 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St., in Woodland on March 9, 16, 23, and 30.

On March 9, participants will run through a crash course for converting a water-thirsty lawn to drought tolerant plants. On March 16, professionals will share the mistakes they’ve made and tips they’ve learned to help your landscape conversion be a success. The March 23 session will provide best practices for managing water on your landscape. On March 30, the focus will be on how to keep up with your water-wise landscape, from irrigation trouble-shooting to understanding the changing water needs of your plants. Participants at each workshop will be entered into a drawing that evening for a water-wise landscaping prize.
