    This special place exists to introduce people to the beauty and diversity of wildflowers and other native plants. The Wildflower Center brings life to Mrs. Johnson's vision in its public gardens.

    Great places for kids to explore & learn about nature. There were more butterflies in the gardens then we have ever seen elsewhere outside. I loved the sound of the wind chimes.

    The Little House Courtyard is perfect for young kids - a well-shaded area with tree stump stools, a framed hut, and large pots for digging up plastic lizards and insects. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    During the summer go to Nature Nights on Thursdays. The lectures are worth the trip 100x over, and it's free.

    Stopping to smell the roses? When photographing flowers, use your camera’s Macro mode for a close-up view.
