Native Plant Garden

Evergreen trees and partially-bare, golden-leafed deciduous trees loom over the Native Plant Garden in the Lower Sammamish Commons in autumn.

In 2008 Linda Hines, a 2005 Washington Native Plant Society Steward, spearheaded an effort in cooperation with the City of Sammamish, the Washington Native Plant Society, and the Sammamish Garden Club. It was to convert approximately 20,000 sf of land in the Lower Sammamish Commons to a native plant sanctuary as an educational benefit for the public.

The joint project has continued through the years and has been supported by:

  • dedicated volunteers;
  • the City of Sammamish;
  • the National Wildlife Federation;
  • Sammamish Friends; and
  • King County.

The Native Plant Garden's history and development are highlighted in this presentation:
