The Environmental Learning Center presents a free Workshop Series for anyone interested in home gardening for wildlife and water quality.
Plants and Fungal Networks
Presented by – Claudia Groth, Plant and Soil Scientist
More than 90% of all plant species form associations with mycorrhizal fungi which enables them to “extend” their root systems to access water and chemical information from further afield. This network reaps many mutual benefits for plants and fungi that include increased drought resistance. As we strive to garden with less water, could these fungal networks be part of the solution?
Clackamas Water Environment Services is proud to support events like this that help protect water quality.
