Structure of the Garden: With photos, imagination, and creativity you can start/augment your garden using important framework criteria. We will discuss trees that tolerate drought and add 3-4 seasons of interest.
Shape and Form of the Garden: Filling the “middle” ground with shrubs and using form to make a year-round garden.
Using Colors and Textures: Developing a palette of colorful plants to provide year-round gardening delight. Perennials, grasses, and foliage all lend their parts to the whole.

The State Mined Lands and Reclamation Division deals with Colorado’s 10,000 disused mines, looking for hazardous conditions – and finding them! Inspectors found bats roosting in some of the mines, and Carol Ann Freeman and her husband Nick Wilson were among the volunteers who for the past 15 years have kept track of which mines are bat habitats. The program (now defunded) was called B/IMP, Bats in Active Mines Program. Carol Ann is a member of HAS, and we are so pleased when one of our members is involved in such an interesting project and is willing to talk to us about it. Come learn about those wonderful and mysterious creatures, the bats of Colorado.

Free to all at the East Library, 5550 E. Union Blvd.
