This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the wildlife benefits of native plants while sharpening your gardening skills!
The native plant education gardens will enhance the aesthetics of the Nature Center and surrounding area while demonstrating the geology and ecology of the mountain, for both visitors and local schools. By evoking a sense of place and history these gardens will provide hands-on knowledge about the native plant communities and forest types on the mountain.
