Native Plant Lecture

This is the first lecture in a series that will explore native gardening while helping community members learn how they can adopt some of the environmentally sensitive and drought tolerant gardening techniques the Canyon Country campus has implemented into its landscaping design. This lecture will be presented by Kathy Sloan, an adjunct biology professor from the college and is appropriate for community members including children in grades 4 through 6. During the tour portion of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to take in the various natural settings and scenic views that make the Canyon Country campus so unique, while learning about the various drought-proof and fire-resistant landscape designs employed by the college.
