Extensive urban growth over the last few decades has had a significant impact on habitat that birds and other wildlife once called home. You, as a homeowner, have a unique opportunity to curtail this loss of habitat by creating your own backyard wildlife sanctuary.

NatureScaping of Southwest Washington is a non-profit, all volunteer, educational organization whose goal is to educate and encourage homeowners to make their yards and gardens a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.

Membership above the $20 level will support maintaining the gardens fencing, irrigation, educational materials and more.

Lasagna Gardening Workshop

August 19, 2017

Presented by Barb Rider & Lee Clapp, Master Composter/Recyclers of Clark County

Join us and learn an easy, frugal and quick method of creating a raised garden bed you assemble from scratch with organic materials readily available. No tilling or turning required! Don't worry if your soil is clay, rock, sand, grass or weeds - this method goes right over the top of (just about) anything. The classroom portion will include the basics of how it works, what materials to gather and answer typical questions. We’ll put our knowledge to work in the hands-on portion where you and your classmates will build and plant a lasagna garden bed in the Wildlife Botanical Gardens newest "Rain Garden".
