Spring Wildflowers in the woodland


Rivers of pastel spring wildflowers. Woodpeckers and squirrels dancing up and down tree trunks. The rustle of wind blowing through golden autumn leaves.  Whatever time of year you visit, you’re sure to find beauty and solace in the shade of the native plant trail’s woodland garden. It features over 70 species of trees and shrubs and over 200 species of herbaceous plants and wildflowers, all blooming at different times throughout the year. The numerous benches and interconnected gravel and mulched trails provide plenty of shady spaces to relax and take in the beauty of nature.


For the winter season, we have a temporary interpretive event happening in the woodland focused on winter trees! Click here to learn more about the signs and activities you'll encounter in this section of the trail.
