STILLWATER - Workshops scheduled at Oklahoma State University aim to promote environmental stewardship.

The Current Challenges in Horticulture and Landscape Architecture workshop is set for Aug. 25 at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.

Sessions will take place at the Wes Watkins Center, followed by a field trip to The Botanic Garden at OSU.

Mike Schnelle, OSU Cooperative Extension floriculture specialist, said garden enthusiasts and commercial growers are facing a number of challenges in the landscaping arena today.

"With the excessive temperatures we've seen this summer, water and its appropriate use has been a challenge encountered by growers," Schnelle said.

One of the sessions during the workshop will focus on xeriscape gardening, while another will introduce Oklahoma water use implications for the next 50 years. There also will be information on using native plants for stream restoration, how the Oklahoma Mesonet can be beneficial, and storm water management.

Registration is $80 if postmarked by Monday, August 15. A discounted rate of $55 is being offered to The Botanic Garden at OSU members, county Extension educators, Master Gardeners and students.

Registration postmarked after Monday will be $125. Lunch is included in the registration fee. Registration on the day of the event begins at 8:30 a.m., with the first workshop at 9 a.m.
