Free Landscape Workshops in Scottsbluff

Free workshops from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum address some landscape management challenges faced by homeowners and professionals. 
Afternoon sessions from 1-4 p.m. are aimed at professionals, public land managers and grant recipients. They will emphasize resource conservation, biodiversity, native plants, pollinator health, stormwater management, water conservation and community vitality. Workshop leader Justin Evertson said communities will learn about grant funding and other resources to improve and better manage local landscapes.
Evening sessions from 5-7 p.m. are aimed at homeowners and the general public, with ideas to improve home landscapes and the benefits they offer both personally and environmentally. Evertson encourages people to bring photos and questions for roundtable discussions and some “stump the experts” problems. 
Workshops are scheduled for Nov. 29, 2016 at the Scottsbluff Public Library; Nov. 30, 2016 at the North Platte Public Library; Dec. 1, 2016 at the Grand Island Public Library; Dec. 7, 2016 in Columbus at Central Community College; Dec. 8, 2016 in Lincoln at the Jane Snyder Trail Center; and Dec. 9, 2016 in Omaha at Douglas-Sarpy County Extension.
