Lawn to Native Landscape

August 19, 2023  10:30 a.m.

Location: Maidu Museum, 1970 Johnson Ranch Drive, Roseville

Presenters: Chrissy Freeman & Tece Markel

Save water, beautify your yard, and support our local birds and butterflies by converting your lawn to a native landscape! Learn how you can do this at a free public workshop.

Learn how to remove or reduce your lawn, and choose native plants that can thrive and enrich your new landscape. The program’s presenters will also share special insights about designing landscapes with native plants. See images of many locally native plants, even a native grass lawn, as well as native plant landscapes that were once just lawn.

Both Chrissy Freeman and Tece Markel are active in the Redbud Chapter, as well as members of Master Gardener programs.




  1. Wonderful! Thank you for doing this! It will be a very important garden workshop, and it’s free… to all, because that’s how important it is…

    Perhaps Ms. Freeman and Ms. Markel would also consider doing a presentation at a local neighborhood association meeting in Roseville, we meet monthly.

  2. Will there be an opportunity to join this workshop remotely? It’s so important and I don’t want to miss it. Thank you.

    1. Hi, This program will only be in person. We are always looking for someone who can help us offer this kind of program as a hybrid event (slides and live presenter). We may offer this program again in Nevada County; if we get support for this, we could offer that one as a hybrid.

  3. Arrived on time today…. but no space available, no standing room, no seats. Please consider a registration process for next time, that way ppl don’t show up only to be turned away. 👎Super disappointing experience, especially since I’ve been waiting for this… since it was announced/ posted nearly 2-months ago.

    Had you reserved the Maidu Community Center, instead of the small conference room in the Maidu Museum, you could have accommodated everyone.
