Third annual conservation landscape tour Sunday

Provided to the TribuneA raised garden bed featuring water efficient landscaping was part of the 2009 Conservation Landscape Tour.

The Tahoe Resource Conservation District is hosting the third annual Conservation Landscape Tour from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

The tour will feature seven gardens from the Angora burn area that highlight Tahoe Basin conservation techniques.

The tour features native and adapted plant selection, water conservation techniques, defensible space methods, erosion control measures, demonstrations and wildlife enhancement features.

Last year’s event attracted more than 150 Tahoe residents to learn about water efficient irrigation techniques and examples of defensible space through proper plant selection, arrangement and management.

Participants are invited to ask the garden stewards and homeowners questions related to the conservation landscapes.

Maps are available from 1-3 p.m. at 1383 Olympia Circle. The other six locations are nearby; carpooling and walking are encouraged. Please, no pets.
