Truckee, Calif. (June 14, 2016) – The Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD) will host a series of seminars aimed at helping community members save water, money and have beautiful landscaping.
Landscape and gardening experts will host the seminars on June 28, July 19 and Aug. 30 at 6 p.m. at the Truckee Donner PUD Board Room, 11570 Donner Pass Road. Refreshments will be served.
“This is a great series for anyone living in Truckee who wants to have beautiful landscaping and save water and money,” said Trisha Ruby, TDPUD conservation program administrator. “There are so many opportunities with native plants, smart landscaping techniques and good watering practices.”
First up on June 28, Eben Swain from the Truckee River Watershed Council will discuss lawn conversion options and river friendly landscaping designed to improve landscaping and reduce its impacts on the Truckee River Watershed.
Next on July 19, Jana Vanderhaar of Verdant Connections will share smart landscape practices that save resources and save energy, which ultimately means saving money.
And on Aug. 30, Bonnie Turnbull of Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe will talk about water-wise landscaping with tips and tricks to save water and money without watching the garden turn brown.
Attendees can make the most of their visit to the TDPUD with a walk through the Patricia Sutton Conservation Garden, which features native and drought-tolerant plants, alternatives to turf, a reclaimed redwood lumber bridge, hardscaping, mulch and weed barrier exhibit and water efficient irrigation.
