The Benefits of Native and Drought Resistant Gardening

Hosted by Kirsten Cook

The purpose of this workshop is to learn more about the hows and whys of native and drought resistant gardening. We will discuss the benefits to native animals, the natural ecosystem, and the gardener, as well as the consequences of other kinds of gardening. I'll give you some tips and relevant plants.

Learn natural history, eco-friendly ethics and risk management!

UCSB Adventure Programs is very proud to offer a place-based Zoom-workshop series by our own staff naturalist, Kirsten Cook, designed to promote nature awareness, develop healthy outdoor ethics, increase knowledge about local ecosystems, and teach about personal care and safety when recreating in the outdoors.

Come join us for discussions and activities on a host of fascinating topics including plant and animal identification, risk awareness and management, outdoor recreation tips and tricks, local indigenous ethnobotany and history, seaside ecosystems, Leave No Trace principles, sustainable foraging, local geology and geography, and so much more!

These will be weekly, 30 minute interactive Zoom-call workshops, presented by our Adventure Programs staff. Join us each week for another exciting topic on our place based nature series!
