Title Image
Meander through three miles of walking and hiking trails and experience sweeps of color in our native wildflower plantings; four learning pavilions; the historic Webb Farmhouse & Galleries; and more. The story and evolution of our Meadow landscape over time is revealed as you experience the harmony of nature’s variety and man’s careful stewardship.

The Meadow Garden blends colorful native plantings and inspiring vistas with the best practices in land stewardship. It was designed by Jonathan Alderson Landscape Architects, Inc. to highlight the unique topography and to showcase this crucial part of the region’s ecology and history. In addition to the hundreds of plant varieties already thriving in the Meadow Garden and the surrounding woodland edge, more than 100 species have been added to create sweeps of color, texture, and biodiversity that permeate the landscape, providing interest and habitat benefit in every season.
