A landscaping program discussing important aspects of recovering all areas of home landscapes including trees, shrubs, turf and gardens will be held at the North Central Research Extension Center in Minot on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
"The flooding of the Souris River in Minot and along the Mouse River Valley has left unsightly damage along its path," said LoAyne Voigt, NDSU Extension agent in Renville County. "This program is designed to educate homeowners with anticipated outcomes and preliminary care of the landscape plants along the course of the damage that was done."
A discussion on how to deal with landscapes will be the focus of the program. Presenters Joe Zeleznik, NDSU Extension Service forester and Thomas Kalb, NDSU Extension Service horticulture specialist, will educate attendees on how to care for flooded landscapes, gardens and trees where the waters have subsided. Also included in the discussion will be Brian Johnson, Minot city forester, and Steve Wharton, Minot city horticulturist.
The program is open to the public. For more information, please contact the Ward County Extension Office at 857-6450 or Renville County Extension Office at 756-6392.
