The public is invited to a workshop by Rennie Ferris at the MidCoast Watersheds Council meeting on Thursday December 1st, 2016 at 6:30 pm in Newport, to learn about pruning shore pines on the Oregon Coast. The meeting will be held in the public meeting room at the Central Lincoln PUD building, located at 2129 N Coast Hwy in Newport, across from the Safeway complex.  Refreshments will be served.

Rennie Ferris is the vice-chair of the MidCoast Watersheds Council. He has spent his life working in the nursery and landscape business here in Newport. He started working in local nurseries at age nine, and from 1975 to his retirement in 2010 his work focused on coastal landscaping. His lifelong interest in growing and caring for trees on the coast has included leading plant pruning workshops with the Lincoln County Extension Service for 12 years. He wants to share this expertise with all of you, so everyone can have beautiful, healthy and nicely sculpted tree specimens in their yards.

We hope you can join us on December 1st for this fun, interactive workshop.
