Showcasing northwest plants since 1963

Referred to as Snohomish County's 'treasure', the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is both a place of beauty and education and is free to the public. Located on 3 acres in American Legion Memorial Park, Everett Washington, its ten themed gardens include the Urban Tree Walk, Entrance Garden, Rock Garden, Northwest Native Plant Trail, Japanese Maple Grove, Northwest Demonstration Garden, Viewing Mound, Woodland and Conifer Gardens as well as the 200' Snohomish County Master Gardener's Demonstration Border and sculptures throughout. Weaving through these gardens are ADA approved pervious pathways in most areas. There are countless ways to experience and enjoy all that the Evergreen Arboretum has to offer; docent-led tours, educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.

About 24 folks spent a big part of their Saturday in the Arboretum. Our Saturday class, Summer Pruning by Trevor Cameron drew a crowd of people learning how to prune spring blooming trees and shrubs. As an added bonus, two expert arboretum board members, Emile Van Den Akker and Wayne Walker shared their expertise. Emile is a conifer specialist, and Wayne is a camellia expert. Volunteers could simply work in the garden or participate in the class which offered hands-on practice in proper pruning.  Many did both. Karen was the winner of our May prize drawing, a $25 gift certificate for Sunnyside Nursery!

The mission of the Evergreen Arboretum is to create and maintain an inspirational arboretum and gardens accessible to all, internationally-acclaimed and locally-enjoyed for its plant diversity, original art and educational opportunities.
