Interested in creating a more ecological woodland garden? On Thursday, July 7, 6:30 pm at Sumner Hall, Lyle Almond, Forest Stewardship Educator with the University of Maryland Extension Service, will discuss the eight essentials of Conservation Landscaping, and aesthetic and ecological principals of woodland gardening- targeted at owners of 1 to 10 acres of wooded property.
In addition to assisting landowners with design and management, Almond is also the Maryland/Delaware Master Logger Program Coordinator, and writes a monthly column, TreeTips, for The Delmarva Farmer. He studied Pro Silva Forestry on a Fulbright Scholarship in Europe, and has a Professional Certificate in Landscape Design from the University of Richmond at Lewis Ginger Botanic Garden.
