Urban Wildlife Garden - Water Resources Education Center

The demonstration site at the Water Resources Education Center provides easy access for the public to learn about earth-friendly techniques that will decrease their use of toxics in the backyard environment.  Techniques include: alternatives to chemicals, on-site water conservation and collection techniques, attracting beneficial insects, use of native plants and “right plant, right place,” and the utilization of compost and mulches to build and maintain healthy soil.

The Water Resources Education Center natural garden emphasizes urban wildlife.  Visit this lovely site on the Columbia River that is planted with 85% natives creating an inviting and natural habitat for local wildlife.  The site includes a water feature, multiple bird-feeding areas, a living fence, native and nectar plants, and is adjacent to a wetland area and the Waterfront Trail along the Columbia River.  The Water Resources Education Center is located at 4600 SE Columbia Way, Vancouver.
