Native plants showcased at nature preserve

From page A3 | March 22, 2013 |

Now is a great time of the year to view native plants, many of which are blooming. The public is invited to visit the Cache Creek Nature Preserve and attend a workshop on native plants at 9 a.m. Saturday. The workshop will include a short presentation, followed by a walk through special areas of the preserve to view native plants in a natural setting.

The Memorial Grove includes plants native to various areas of California, and the Tending and Gathering Garden displays plants used in Native American cultural activities. Discussions will include using native plants in watershed restoration and how they could be used in a landscape setting.

The workshop will be led by the Cache Creek Conservancy’s habitat restoration manager, Christopher Gardner, who will be assisted by board members Sally Barrett, Jeanette Wrysinski and Rob Beggs. There is no charge for the program, but donations are accepted with gratitude.

Pre-registration is suggested as space is limited. For more information or to reserve a space, call 530-661-1070 or email gmartin@cachecreekconservancy.org. Visitors should bring their own drinking water because there is no potable water on site.

The preserve, at 34199 County Road 20 west of Woodland, will remain open until 2 p.m. Picnic tables are available for those wishing to enjoy lunch outdoors.
