Plan to visit the Buck Lake Native Plant Garden located at 6959 Buck Lake Rd,
(in Buck Lake Park), Hansville, WA
The Buck Lake Native Plant Garden was the vision of a Hansville Master Gardener. He enlisted the help of two local landscape architecture/design professionals with a passion for native plants and several other Master Gardeners and pitched his garden idea to the Kitsap County Parks Department.
In the ensuing 10 years, the BLNPG has been developed as a demonstration garden using plants native to Washington, Oregon, Northern California and British Columbia, west of the Cascade mountains. It's mission: to encourage the use of native plants in home landscapes. Visitors to the garden can see native plants used in garden situations easily replicated in the home garden, featuring lush shade plantings, a camas meadow, a seasonal streambed and a rain garden.
The Buck Lake Native Plant Garden is maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers from local garden clubs, interested area residents and Kitsap County Master Gardeners.
Anyone with an interest in gardening is encouraged to join our group. Learn about native plants and their benefits to our local wildlife.
