  • HISTORY on 04/22/10

    This is the oldest public wildflower garden in the US. In 1907 Eloise Butler & 3 botany teachers successfully petitioned the Park Board to create a natural botanic garden to preserve native flora.

    August means the prairie is beautiful right now. Flowers, frogs, bugs, birds!

  • Lindsy H. on 03/17/12

    Opens April 15, but wish it would open earlier this year.

  • Lauren H. on 06/17/13

    Stop in the shelter for information about what's blooming, bird and plant id'img, and general friendliness!
