This Garden is a must go in the spring through early summer for wild flower lovers and birders. Parking is cheap. Fairly well maintained walking trails. Good interpretive center. A GPS would be helpful to find your way there.

A lovely place to contemplate life. Fresh. Open. Abundant wildflowers. Seasonal attraction. Easy to find and great to experience. Not only is the natural world great but so are the man made structures.

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden & Bird Sanctuary. There are signs at both gates to enter the garden stating this.
