Rock salt, also known as sodium chloride or just NACL, is readily available, effective at warmer temperatures and cheap, but when it builds up from repeated use or overuse in winter, it can be quite harmful to metal, concrete, animals, plants and waterways.
FCCD will present at a Native Plant Stewardship Course this Spring. The course, “Conserving and Restoring Shrub-steppe Habitats”, is hosted by the Wenatchee Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society. Though it is a member-only course, anyone can become a member at any time! For more information, check out the flier on our web page, or contact Jim Evans at 206-678-8914 or by email.
