Master Gardner workshop scheduled

The Daily World

On Saturday Dec. 3, WSU Master Gardeners, in partnership with the Friends of Schafer and Lake Sylvia and Lake Sylvia State Park, will host the final First Saturday workshop of 2016 at Lake Sylvia, just outside of Montesano.

The topic will be how to identify native woody plants in winter.

A common problem once most of the leaves drop, learning how to identify native shrubs and trees during the winter is not only a useful skill, but a fun enhancement for outdoor activities.

Starting at 10 a.m. at the kitchen structure across the bridge at Lake Sylvia, presenters will share information about identifying winter plants, followed by a short walk to see some samples in the wild.

A plant clinic to answer other gardening questions will immediately follow.

This workshop is free and no registration is required.

Participants do need a Discover Pass to park at Lake Sylvia State Park.
