The Fortuna Garden Club named their final yard of the year. The month of August brought special recognition to the heather garden at the Riverlodge in Fortuna. The heather garden was created in 1998 by Heather Enthusiasts of the Redwood Empire. The site features a large assortment of varieties of heather plants that draw the eye throughout the year.
