Beautiful new "Northwest Hedgerows: Living Fences for Fish and Wildlife" first edition is available now! Partnering with King Conservation District, we have designed an eye catching celebration of some of the best native plants to grow as hedgerows. Add water and create a beautiful riparian buffer that protects Pacific salmon habitat, and invites birds and bees and all kinds of wildlife.  Hedgerows serve as "living fences" that help farmers stop erosion, improve soil fertility, keep farm animals out of salmon bearing streams and protect wetlands.  People fly from all over the world to see the hedgerows in the British Isles. You watch -- people will be coming here to the Northwest to see ours, too. 

Are you working with Conservation Districts, teachers, nature centers, and Project Learning Tree, Project Wet, Master Gardeners, or native plant society? Treemendous Teachers offer is for you!

Or call me at 206 271 3490 and we'll take care of your order over right away. Over 10,000 sold this year.  Buy today!  Satisfaction guaranteed. Art changes lives, Good Nature's art helps you learn and teach so we can protect native habitat and help plants and animals flourish.   -- Timothy Colman, poster sherpa
