About the Gardens
The esteemed Olmsted Brothers Landscape firm designed the Dunn Gardens in 1915. One hundred years later the vision of the Gardens as a place of timeless grace has been realized. Notable features include naturalistic groupings of trees, broad lawns with borders of shrubs, and woodland walks. Plants range from diminutive erythroniums to large rhododendrons and towering Douglas firs.
To conserve the Dunn Gardens for public enjoyment and education, and to promote the preservation of other Northwest gardens of historical and horticultural significance.
Dunn Gardens Archive
The archive makes available the historic record of this cultural landscape and the enterprise of its conservation and interpretation.
Woody Wheeler is a master birder who has conducted bird watching classes in the Dunn Gardens so he is a known and admired quantity - which is why he is coming back to teach a class.
Members and their guests are invited to an Open Day when the rhododendrons are coming into their full glory.
It is with great pleasure we invite you to meet our new Director of Historic Preservation: Quill Teal-Sullivan.
