Have you ever wondered what’s going on behind the scenes in a “certified backyard habitat”? Want to see excellent and diverse examples of how others design and combine native and ornamental plants into gorgeous gardens? Now’s your chance!

This event will feature the gorgeous, gold-certified yard of Patricia McMackin. Her oversized lot features seven towering Oregon white oak trees, complimented by a native oak-scape with more than 30 species of appropriate native plants in their understory.

Come and informally tour her garden, ask questions, and learn all about the Backyard Habitat Certification Program.

This open garden event is FREE, and open to the public, but registration is required. The exact address of the open garden will be emailed to you upon registration.
