Besides numerous research papers, I have written several books, all of which are in reach of the general public. I’m ctively involved in the protection of all remaining late successional/old-growth forests  (LSOG) on federal lands in the Wenatchee Mountain to the Members of the Regional Interagency Executive Committee. And they welcome any monetary donation.

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden

Art’s passion for plants is seen in his four-acre home garden, now incorporated and preserved as the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, in Shoreline, Washington. With his wife Mareen, the garden has become an outstanding botanical collection and has great aesthetic value to the community.
