The Lori Pierson Memorial Demonstration Garden

Spend time enjoying the vast representation of adaptive and native species of our mountains or just relax on one of the garden benches and take in the natural beauty of the garden. The Garden highlights commercially available native and adaptive trees, shrubs and ground covers ideal for planting in the Lake Arrowhead area.

We are honored to dedicate the Demonstration Garden to the late Lori Pearson. As a long time ALA volunteer, Lori designed this garden. Lori dedicated her energy and talent to make the Lake Arrowhead community a wonderful place to live. We are grateful for Lori's knowledge and expertise in creating this beautiful garden which provides residents the information needed to create a beautiful and safer mountain forest.
