The Echo Lake School Native Plant Garden is 10 years old this spring and has 120 native plant species!

The garden is planted on a hillside

The students in the Green Thumb Club have been working hard to get the garden ready. Master Gardener Donna Franklin coordinates the Green Thumb Club, consisting of 4th, 5th and 6th graders who give up a recess a week to help maintain the Garden. Donna also enlists community volunteers to assist her.

For ten years, students in the Green Thumb Club
have used a recess a week to work in the garden

Come walk along the garden paths and enjoy the many flowers in bloom.

These are among the 25 species blooming in the garden now.

Orange Honeysuckle

Cardwell’s Penstemon

Black Twinberry

These are conifers.

The garden has sections for every climate zone in the northwest.
