Cons Landscape Tour Flier.with after party2

Get inspired to transform your home’s landscape into a mountain oasis! This year’s theme is discovering the many approaches to Tahoe Friendly Landscaping. The tour will begin at the Lake Tahoe Community College Demonstration Garden where participants can pick up passports and a map of the landscape tour while enjoying refreshments and interacting with a BMP maintenance demonstration. While on the tour you will have the pleasure of viewing numerous houses from our local community that are shining examples of sustainable landscaping. Each of the houses will be hosted by a local agency acting as your informational resource in regards to these landscapes. Topics will include attracting pollinators to your garden, integrated pest management, sustainable turf care, habitat gardening, erosion control, defensible space, and gardening with native and climate appropriate plants. We would like to thank Keep Tahoe Blue, South Tahoe Public Utility District, Lake Tahoe Basin Fire Academy, City of South Lake Tahoe, and Master Gardeners of El Dorado County for coming together to make this year’s conservation landscape tour one the community will not forget.
