After purchasing your tickets and receiving your map, drive a short distance to each of the tour sites. Take in the spectacular view of a rolling prairie restoration. Catch some shade under a towering oak, a keystone species helping to sustain all forms of native life. Enjoy the native butterflies, bees and other pollinators that depend on our native plants to survive. Delight in the birds attracted to the food sources provided by native plants.

The Native Garden Tour provides an invitation for gardeners and homeowners to share and learn about the beauty and conservation opportunities a native garden naturally provides.
