Heritage Garden Program

You may be familiar with Xeriscaping--but what about native plant landscaping?


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


Heritage Gardens:

  • 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.
