Master Watershed Stewards to Host Webinar: Native Tree and Shrub Sale

by Penn State Extension

Jul 11, 2023

The Penn State Extension Master Watershed Steward Program is hosting its 4th Annual Native Tree and Shrub Sale this August. Leading up to the sale, the Master Watershed Steward Program is hosting a webinar to help PA residents learn more about the tree sale fundraiser and the species included this year.

During this free webinar, we will review the plants available in the upcoming Annual Native Tree and Shrub Sale, discuss selecting plants for your property and conditions, and provide order and pick-up information for the August sale. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM.

Planting native trees and shrubs is a powerful way to turn your landscape into a wildlife wonderland while improving local stream health and water quality. But choosing the best species for your specific landscape conditions can be challenging. Join Penn State Master Watershed Stewards and Penn State Master Gardeners for this interactive webinar, where you’ll learn all you need to know about this year’s Annual Native Tree and Shrub fundraiser species selection. Registrants will have an opportunity also to submit in advance a question about choosing the right tree or shrub for their property.

The Master Watershed Steward programs of Berks and Schuylkill counties, Erie County, and the PA Wilds are hosting this webinar.
