Beautiful Marine Water Feature

The beautiful water at the entrance to the MLRC is the realization of many, many years of dreaming and planning.  The Heritage and Culture Committee believed “The People of the Water” – who belong to the inland watersheds of South Puget Sound – needed their home environment (a marine atmosphere) at the center of the Tu Ha’ Buts (Future World) Cultural Center complex. Adjacent to the MLRC is a canoe carving shed and areas for growing traditional plants for food and medicine.


The project was completed by Jacob Tate, owner of Dreamscapes Landscape and Design just prior to Squaxin Island Tribe’s hosting of the highly successful (over 30,000 participants) Paddle to Squaxin 2012.
