  • create windbreaks
  • contain livestock & reduce odors
  • create habitat for better pest control
  • create privacy
  • protect nearby or adjacent waterways
  • and more!

Experts from WSU Extension, Thurston Conservation District, and Natural Resources Conservation Service will share their expertise and advice, and a local landowner will present a case study of his hedgerow project.  Join us to learn more about the benefits of hedgerows, how you can use them on your property, local programs to help design and fund them, and more!
