Our nature preserves are open to the public 365 days per year, providing natural places that offer peace and respite for all. We do love dogs, however... Because it is an important bird area (IBA) for nesting grassland birds who are very sensitive to the presence of dogs, they are not allowed at Kirkwood … Learn more about our nature preserves.
We have created a self-guided tour during peak summer bloom* highlighting wild meadows and planned gardens to inspire you to create wildlife habitat in your own backyard, help conserve water, reduce erosion and greenhouse gas emissions. Tour locations are accessible dawn to dusk!
A digital booklet will be email to registrants on July 17, 2020 including:
– map of tour locations
– garden stories
– plant lists
– planting guides
– access to informational videos from Trust Staff.
Your registration will also include a special discount on plant packages inspired by the Trust’s gardens from our friends at Redbud Native Plant Nursery in Media.
*Registration for Wildflower Week is open throughout the duration of the event during July 18 – 25 and our summer bloom resources will be relevant for all of July!
Since this is self-guided, you are welcome to use the resources to visit our gardens at anytime.
