Visitors can also see several demonstration gardens including heather, sensory, gazebo and drought-tolerant gardens.

The 12-acre arboretum, established in 1978 on the northernmost bluff of the campus, serves the community and the the college as an outdoor laboratory. Community workshops and classes are offered throughout the year at the arboretum.

Parking for the Arbor Day Tour and Tea is available in the college's north parking lot, adjacent to the arboretum.

Transportation will be provided from the arboretum to the Rainier Dining Room.

The arboretum is at 6000 16th Ave. S.W. in West Seattle. For further information, call 764-5336
