From Anita Fisk:
We are very fortunate to have on our Steering Committee for Friends of the newly-named Licorice Fern Nature Area (formally Thornton Creek Park #1) Emily Spronger, Program director of Kruckeberg Gardens.
Krukeberg Botanic Garden www.kruckeberg.org is located Shoreline. Although I have lived in Seattle longer than anywhere else I have lived in my rather peripatetic life, I only became aware of the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden as a result of knowing Emily, and I visited recently on a Sunday. It’s a local treasure begun by the Kruckebergs who had more than the average interest in plants, and ended up with more than the average garden with more than enough to share, so we can help support this local treasure. The City of Shoreline now owns the gardens. It’s a very interesting mix of native species and hard-to-find plants. It’s a must-see.
