Why Visit

Our goal is to provide a public learning center with information about environmentally sound alternatives to traditional practices so that individuals can make choices for a more sustainable lifestyle.

Our Outdoor Exhibits are accessible at any time by anyone, with basic information provided on signs. Our Indoor Resource Center, which includes more detailed information about some of the outdoor exhibits, is open during the WSU Extension Master Gardener Clinic hours. Tours or class field trips can be arranged in advance when volunteer staff is available.
