Heritage Gardens are landscaped areas designed to honor the cultural and natural heritage of the Columbia Basin while utilizing sustainable gardening practices. Heritage gardens:

  • Promote the use of plants native to Washington State;
  • Promote low-water use landscaping & efficient irrigation methods; and
  • Educate our community about the history and biodiversity of the Columbia Basin.

This program is brought to our community through our chapter partnering with the Benton and Franklin Conservation Districts. 

Visit the Heritage Garden website to learn about this program and resources that are available for native plant and water-wise gardening.
