Camas-Washougal Garden Club returns to historical park stewardship

The Columbian

CAMAS — The Community Garden Club’s decades of service in Parker’s Landing Historical Park ended in 1999 with a granite plaque placed in the grass near the garden volunteers’ garden shed and a dogwood was planted nearby. The expressions of gratitude to the club was most likely initiated by Rosalee MacRae, park advocate and founder who was also a Community Garden Club member. Rosalee served as the Parkersville Site Development Committee secretary, and continued her service as a member of the Parkersville National Historic Site Advisory Committee for the rest of her life.

Now, more 20 years later, Community Garden Club of Camas-Washougal member Susan Tripp has formed a new dedicated Garden Club team that will continue the club’s important history in the park.
