The Benton Conservation District has extended the deadline to register for a free Heritage Garden workshop with author/naturalist Jack Nisbet to Nov. 15.

The workshop will be held at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Mid-Columbia Libraries branch at 1620 S. Union St., in Kennewick. An open house will begin the workshop, and Nisbet will present "A Remarkable Garden: David Douglas and the Flora of the Columbia Basin" starting at 1 p.m.

Douglas made several trips up the Columbia River to collect flora and fauna between 1826 and 1833.

After Nisbet's presentation, the Benton Conservation District will moderate a Heritage Garden Roundtable featuring local experts who will share about native plants and how to start a Heritage Garden, which showcases native plants and materials to honor the natural, geologic and cultural history of a region.
