If you've never visited West Seattle's own Arboretum you have missed a genuinely fascinating place. It's part of the campus of South Seattle college and the college is conducting a survey to determine how well the Arboretum is known in the community. This will help them plan future activities and prepare for thier 40th Anniversary in 2018.
Here's the link to the survey
About the Arboretum
The South Seattle College Arboretum was established by the College and the SSC Foundation in 1978, in part as the result of a petition by the Landscape Horticulture Program students for an arboretum to serve as their living laboratory. The 5-acre site is located at the north end of campus on a bluff over looking the downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay and the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The Seattle Chinese Garden borders the Arboretum.
