Wildscaping 101 offers an overview of the importance of introducing native plants into home landscapes. This Audubon Rockies presentation aims to inspire homeowners to be creative, to nurture and connect with nature and save precious resources through wildscaping: replacing input-intensive lawns with beautiful gardens that benefit people, pollinators, birds and other wildlife.
We are healing the Earth, one native plant at a time. Please join us!
ABOUT LISA OLSEN, PRESENTER
A Colorado Certified Nursery Professional working at a retail nursery, Lisa is on the ‘front line’ of the movement towards landscaping with native plants, speaking with people daily about the choices they are making for their yards. From an early age, Lisa has had a passion for wildlife and wild places. Growing up in drought-plagued California, she has long been an advocate for water conservation, and recognizes that the future of residential and commercial landscaping must include plants native to the region, benefiting the planet and the pocketbook.
Living in Colorado since 2007, Lisa has joined the Colorado Native Plant Society, is a certified Native Plant Master, a volunteer native seed collector and crew leader with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, and a Wildscape Ambassador through Audubon Rockies. In 2019 Lisa joined the board of directors of the Front Range Chapter of Wild Ones, and is volunteering as Programming Co-Chair. Lisa sees potential habitat everywhere, from yards to median strips and parking lots, and knows from experience that ‘If you plant it, they will come.’
