Garden Workshops with Richard Huntley

Richard is back as a volunteer at the Placer Nature Center. He will be offering workshops on garden-related topics throughout the summer. Contact us to sign up! The cost is $20 for 3 hours of instruction.

Saturday June 5 – Taming Your Tomatoes 10-11:30am

Saturday June 5 – Companion Planting 12-1:30pm


Led by our docent Linda Conklin. Contact us to schedule your visit!


When the seasons change, so do the life cycles of the plants and animals.  We’ll learn about how trees and animals begin and end. 

WINTER: Furry Friends   

Get introduced to the mammals of the foothills. We’ll learn where they live, what they eat, which ones are predators, which are prey and how you can tell which they are. We’ll look for tracks, scat and other clues of these animals.

SPRING AND SUMMER: Wildflower or Birds   

We’ll be looking at wildflowers along the nature trail with hand lenses or looking for birds or bird nests with kid’s binoculars.
