Ecologist to speak on landscape design
The Cheshire County Conservation District will be hosting Jeff Littleton, the Principle Ecologist of Moosewood Ecological LLC in a talk exploring how to minimize impacts on the natural environment while creating an outdoor living space.
On March 4, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Keene Public Library, residents will investigate the basics of site planning and ecological landscape design as a means to restore or enhance property while incorporating various conservation techniques.
Other topics will include native plantings, managing invasive plants, and landscaping for wildlife. The talk will move beyond the yard and into the woodlands.
Littleton is an adjunct faculty member at Antioch University. This workshop is free with donations accepted, and is held in conjunction with the annual Plant Sale.
