Water and its surrounding ecosystems are a precious resource in Agassiz-Harrison and beyond.
Earthwise Agassiz is hosting a three-part webinar and workshop series, “Protecting Freshwater Ecosystems”. The series aims to shine a light on freshwater ecosystems and the ways we can help conserve them.
The second webinar – titled “Water Conserving Landscapes” will take place the following week on September 28 from 7-8 p.m. This webinar dives into water conservation as it relates to the vegetable garden. Participants will learn how to enhance their home landscapes to protect freshwater environments using natural infrastructure techniques like rain gardens, dry streams, and the use of native plants.
Following the webinars, there will be a hands-on work and learn session focusing on Earthwise rain gardens and water-efficient landscaping techniques. The session will focus on environmentally friendly gardening methods, including rainwater harvesting, working with the natural landscape around you, and plant selection. The date and time of this meeting are to be specified.
Online webinars are free, but registration is required.
Since 2015, Earthwise Agassiz has been working to restore riparian ecosystems and wetlands in the Agassiz-Harrison region. The 58-acre Earthwise Agassiz site also includes interpretive nature trails and an organic learning farm with a 1910 farmhouse.
