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, is being developed by a group of Kitsap County Master Gardeners, local garden club members and interested Greater Hansville area residents. It is designed as a demonstration garden, showcasing plants native to Southern British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Northern California, west of the Cascade Mountains. The garden's stated mission is to encourage the use of native plants in the home garden and to educate the public on their benefits. To that end, the BLNPG features native plants used in situations easily replicated in the home garden. Visitors can see lush shade plantings, a birch grove, a camas meadow, a seasonal streambed, a rain garden and other garden areas.

Anyone with an interest in gardening is encouraged to join our group. Learn about native plants and their benefits to our local wildlife.
