Heritage Gardens

KCCD is pleased to be part of the Heritage Gardens program beginning in the fall of 2021. 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 Benton Conservation District in partnership with Kittitas County Conservation District. For assistance with developing your own Heritage Garden contact us.  Funding for Heritage Gardens in Kittitas County is provided by a grant from the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan’s Municipal Subgroup through the Washington State Department of Ecology.
