Scottsdale Water Efficiency Workshop Series

Learn ways to enhance the beauty of your home while saving water and money by attending a Water Efficiency Workshop or Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden tour. Classes and tours are free, open to all Scottsdale residents and appropriate for all levels of skill and experience. 

The current series, which will be held at the Civic Center Library, runs July through November and covers topics from complete landscape makeover to attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. 

During the tour of the Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden at Chaparral Park, Garden Caretaker Bill Casenhiser will guide you through the 5.5-acre desert oasis near Hayden Road and McDonald Drive. The garden is home to over 7,000 beautiful, water-thrifty plants of 200 different species. 

Advanced registration is required for the workshops and tours and can be made online at or by calling 480-312-5690. Confirmations will be provided.
