Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden

The garden features native plant species and cultivars chosen for their ability to attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The garden was awarded the All-America Selections 2009 Exemplary Education Award for MPRB’s continuing work with children interested in gardening.

The Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden is adjacent to the Peace Garden, and is the site for MPRB’s annual Pollinator Party: A Celebration of Bees.

Perennial and Border Garden

The garden features perennials that are tested over several seasons for hardiness, disease resistance and other characteristics. It is a meandering border that begins near King’s Highway and follows the wood line down towards the Peace Garden.
