Master Gardener Winter Webcasts

The Mahaksa county office of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host the  Master Gardener Winter Webcasts. Mahaska County will show the webcasts at 10:30 am, 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm at the Mahaska County Extension office. 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa.  The viewing is FREE and open to the public.  Prior registration is NOT required, but appreciated.  To register, please call 641-673-5841 or email Suzette Striegel, Mahaska County Extension horticulturist. All webcasts count toward Master Gardener continuing education hours and last an hour.

Topics and speakers and date are:

  • February 6; Iowa Weather: With a changing climate, Iowa will be warmer and wetter. State Climatologist Justin Glisan, PhD, from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, will share what people can do to adapt to changing growing conditions.
  • February 20; Bring Kids in the Garden: State Master Gardener Coordinator Susan DeBlieck wants adults to help get youth outdoors every day. She’ll share ideas for Master Gardener volunteer project sites and youth landscape design tips.
  • March 5; Explore the Ada Hayden Herbarium: Love native plants? Deborah Lewis is the curator of the Ada Hayden Herbarium. Learn about early Iowa botanists, explore the herbarium and Deb’s favorite native plants. What would we find if we had full-access to the Ada Hayden Herbarium for an hour-long scavenger hunt without worrying about “museum rules” and damaging the specimens (or getting squished between the moveable rows of cabinets)? First, we might find out what the Herbarium is, how its samples (specimens) are stored, and why the Herbarium is important in teaching and research. Next, participants would track down some favorite specimens – old, rare, lovely, recent, odd… Then, from these specimens, we could perhaps find clues to the stories of a few of the many collectors of Iowa’s native plants who are represented in the Herbarium – and how their specimens and research results are still being used! The scavenger hunt list includes: Indian-grass, packet, Louis Pammel, morel, plant press, orchid… and, of course, Ada Hayden.
