The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden at Richmond Beach, in Shoreline, Washington, is a public garden dedicated to community enjoyment and educational enrichment. Mareen and Arthur Kruckeberg assembled the Garden’s four-acre plant collection over many years. It is rich in native plants of the Pacific Northwest and unusual species from other lands, set in a wooded, park-like atmosphere. The bird list identifies over 25 species that have visited the Garden. In January 2008 the Garden became part of the City of Shoreline’s park system. The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF) is responsible for operation and maintenance of the Garden, in collaboration with the City of Shoreline. The KBGF also operates the on-site MsK Rare Plant Nursery.
