Heritage Gardens are landscaped areas designed to honor the cultural and natural heritage of the Columbia River Basin while utilizing sustainable gardening practices.
Promote the use of native plants especially those of cultural significance;
Promote low-water use landscaping & efficient irrigation methods; and
Educate our community about the history and biodiversity of the Columbia River Basin
The Heritage Garden Program is brought to our community by the Benton and Franklin Conservation Districts in partnership with the Columbia Basin Chapter of the Native Plant Society. For assistance with developing your own Heritage Garden contact us.
