May 21 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Create a beautiful yard, preserve local waterways and protect the Chesapeake Bay.
Join us for a FREE Baywise garden workshop to learn about Bay-Wise landscaping with native plants at a private residence in Timonium.
Bayscapes replace lawn with native plants that support wildlife, reduce maintenance, and filter rain water from your yard, driveway, or other hard surfaces. Bayscapes are planted in areas that will intercept and filter rainwater before it runs off to a storm drain, local creeks and streams, or the Chesapeake Bay.
No gardening experience necessary. A maximum of 20 people, including the homeowner and our staff, will be allowed to participate in this event. We are allowing minors (ages 8 – 17) to attend our events as long as there is one parent/legal guardian per two children.
