Recently I took a hike at the University of Wisconsin Arboretum in Madison. Once again, took way too many photos! Here are only a few from the day spent walking the grounds of this very important place.
The arboretum is designated by the National Park Service as a National Historic Landmark for its foundational work in ecological restoration. It has over 300 native wildflowers, grasses and sedges. There are deciduous forest trees, conifer trees, wetlands, prairie restoration, and so much more to experience. All total, there are more than seventeen miles of trails.
more of that to come in an upcoming post.
A day well worth the time. Wonderful to be there!
Even the bugs were enjoying the place!
Very interesting place.ReplyDelete
Yes it is!!!Delete
Great! One of the many neat places missed when COVID shut us down.ReplyDelete
One good thing at the arboretum is that there is plenty of space to social distance.Delete
Yes, one of my favorite places, and I volunteer there (well, pre- and post-COVID). I hope you're enjoying your time in Madison. :)ReplyDelete
Yes it is a great place to walk or ride a bike. Regarding your day lilies, I think mine do well because of the normal "cooler near the lake" - - except this year HOT HOT HOT!Delete
