Located in Washington Elementary’s central courtyard, our garden serves local wildlife, student education, and the Pasadena community. It is a learning tool where we utilize all the features to investigate relationships among life in our native ecosystems. Look for our favorites, such as hummingbird sage, lupine, California goldenrod, milkweed, quailbush, and western columbine. You’ll find creatures surrounding the solar-powered fountains for a drink or climbing along the tree stumps near the arbor entangled with grape vines. There’s a space for everyone to observe and explore.
