Insider Info

The main path is about a mile long and showcases both habitat gardens and natural features, such as a swamp, Hop Brook, and views from high ridges. Three short side loops reveal a "lost pond," hidden hills, and odd finger-like ripples on the land that may be clues to the history of the site.

Ask for the "treasure hunt" for younger children to help them truly see the plants and maybe find the stegosaurus. Children especially like the Lily Pond, where they can see turtles, hear frogs croaking, and watch water striders. Be on the lookout for birds, including a flock of wild turkeys.

A new audio tour is available for download on Garden in the Woods' website.

Fun Facts

The Garden is the headquarters of New England Wild Flower Society, America's oldest plant conservation organization. The mission of the Society is to conserve and promote the region's native plants to ensure healthy, biologically diverse landscapes.

The Society also operates a native plant nursery at Nasami Farm in western Massachusetts, which grows plants from sustainably collected wild seed. In addition, the Society has six sanctuaries in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont that are open to the public.

Garden in the Woods offers more than 200 classes and field trips in botany and horticulture, plus a growing set of online courses and webinars.
