Three Landscape Classes offered At Cooperative Extension

Posted 6/11/2009

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE) for three summer classes on the principles of landscape management. The classes are designed to provide professional landscape workers and small landscape business owners with the latest, research-based information on efficient landscape management. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Topics for the summer session include Dr. Angela O’Callaghan’s (Monday, July 13) discussion on when and where to use annuals, biennials and perennials; and Professor ML Robinson’s better turf management plan (Monday, August 10) and palms species (Monday, September 14) that you may not have considered for local use will be demonstrated in the UNCE Palm Garden. Classes are held from 6-9 p.m. The classes, held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, LV 89123, I-215 and Windmill Lane), are $5 each or register for all three for $10. Class size is limited to 50. For more information, please contact Colleen Grant at grantc@unce.unr.edu or call 702-257-5532.
