Learn ways to create a defensible space, which reduces the risk of wildfire damage to your home.  Bret Van Paepeghem, Project Manager for South Idaho Firewise will discuss the principles of flammable materials reduction, water conservation techniques and creating landscape zones.  Participants will see plants to avoid as well as those that are more fire resistant.  Many of these plants are also appropriate for low water use gardens.  The class will tour the Firewise demonstration garden planted and maintained through a cooperative effort by the Bureau of Land Management, College of Western Idaho Horticulture Program and Idaho Firewise.

Admission: $12 for IBG Members; $17 for non-members.
