Stream-side Planting with Native Plants Workshop
As temperatures warm up in the spring, most of us think of getting out in the garden to start planting.  However, west of the Cascade Mountains, most of our rainfall comes between October and May and the fall remains the best time to start planting trees and other vegetation. The fall and winter rain helps plant roots establish, making plants more resistant to our dry summer conditions.

So how does fall planting produce healthy streams? Water bodies benefit from plants, explains Brendan Addis, Clean Water Commissioner.  Trees shade rivers and lakes, keeping water cool which better supports aquatic life. Shrubs and grasses stabilize slopes and slow down stormwater runoff before it enters our water bodies, filtering out harmful pollutants.  Addis will present on Streamside Planting October 19 to help landowners learn about the best native plants to plant along rivers, streams, lakes and ponds to improve aesthetics and health.  The class will be held at the 78th Street Heritage Farm and there will be a site visit to a planting along the Greenway. Participants will learn about and see riparian restoration in a combination of classroom instruction and nature walk.
