From our friends at WABI Burien:
The flowers are still out at the lovely Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden at North SeaTac Park!
Come join the WABI Weekday Walkers this Wednesday, Dec. 15, 11 a.m. (NOTE NEW TIME). We’ll start at the gardens and walk about 2 miles (45 min.) through the 11-acre botanical and Japanese gardens on paved pathways.
The garden, opened in 2000, has at its heart the “Paradise Garden,” an award-winning horticultural treasure created by Elda Behm. When her neighborhood was demolished in the 1990s for the airport’s third runway, Behm’s extensive plant collection was relocated to form the basis of the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden. Similarly, the Seiki Japanese Garden was physically relocated to the Botanical Garden due to airport runway expansion.
Meeting Time and Location:
Date: Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021
