Firewise Landscape: Concepts & Techniques

Tuesday, September 18th 2018 • 6:00pm - 8:00pm

INSTRUCTOR: Brett Van Paepeghem, South Idaho Project Manager, Idaho Firewise
COST: IBG Member: $12 • Non-Member: $17
LOCATION: Cottage

Learn ways to create a defensible space that reduces the risk of wildfire damage to your home. Brett will discuss the principles of flammable materials reduction, water conservation techniques, and creating landscape zones. Participants will see plants to avoid as well as those that are more fire resistant. Many of these plants are also appropriate for low water use gardens. The class will tour the Firewise demonstration garden planted and maintained through a cooperative effort by the Bureau of Land Management, College of Western Idaho Horticulture Program, and Idaho Firewise.
