Woodland Garden

An outdoor exhibit showcasing native plants, trees, and flowers in a wooded setting.

The Montshire is a campus for the New England Wildflower Society (NEWFS), and the Woodland Garden was established in 2008 with assistance from NEWFS to aid visitors in the identification and protection of native New England plants. The short interpretive path (0.1 miles) begins with stone steps located just across the driveway from the Museum building. The path winds through a spectacular array of native plants, passes a seasonal stream, and has benches created by Vermont artisans for visitors who wish to rest and enjoy the scenery. The path ends at the far side of the parking lot.
