The Weltands are an innovative, pioneering program in partnership with the City of Silverton in which the area’s treated waste water is used to create a thriving wetlands habitat for a variety of wildlife and plants.

The water travels at the rate of 300 gallons per minute in peak season through a series of terraced ponds with cascading water, pools and wetlands plants, into a holding tank where it then flows into an irrigation system — a unique and attractive method of using treated water to irrigate the Garden. The Wetlands also play an active role in the education programs at the Garden.
