Tours of the new two-acre native plant and pollinator education garden will be offered, as well as a catch and release pollinator art station and opportunities to learn about sustainable landscaping techniques, native plants and native bees. The event is organized by Heritage Gardens, Lower Columbia Basin Audubon and the Columbia Basin Native Plant Society.
Garden tours will run every half-hour beginning at 9:30 a.m. Visitors are invited to bring lunch and enjoy the afternoon at the facility’s new picnic tables.
