The EERC Native Plant Guided Tour

The EERC Native Plant Guided Tour is located on a forested island in the north parking lot of the park. Using your smart phone, the QR codes can be scanned linking you with a wealth of information about the plants while standing next to the plant. This project was co-funded by the Washington Native Plant Society, Republic Services, and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.

The list of native plants below are represented in the tour. Click on the plant names below to learn much more about each one. Better yet, come to the park and use the Native Plant Tour to learn about the ecology, identification, and indigenous uses of these plants while they are right in front of you! Then go and apply that knowledge to enrich your walks throughout the park and beyond!
