Show #29/4103. Keeping Our Gardens In Harmony With The Environment
A Park Within A Park
This park is particularly interesting. It is situated on about 20 acres but is surrounded by a huge park. There are 600 species of native plants in the surrounding park and over 1,300 species of plants in this park for the
visitors to see. And here one finds not only plants, but animals as well. The wildlife is diverse. They have many mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates that visitors can encounter while visiting. The natural setting lends
itself to its own beauty throughout the gardens at the Museum. They've enhanced the vegetation to fit the message for a richer experience for the visitor. By simply embellishing the area a little, it provides a very powerful
message in a natural setting.
