Mountaineers Demonstration Garden, 2010

The Mountaineers Native Plant Demonstration Garden was a collaborative project between the LTDC, The Mountaineers and the Washington Native Plant Society. A little used area adjacent to The Mountaineers campus in Magnuson Park was transformed from a blackberry hillside and asphalt parking lot into a lush demonstration garden with walking paths, basalt seating rocks, education signage and over 185 plant identification tags. The garden aims to inspire and educate visitors, encouraging them to make use of natives in their home gardens.
