The Thornton W. Burgess Society’s prizewinning wildflower garden is a highlight of any visit to the Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen and is a wildflower gardener’s dream! The seasonal living museum offers weekly guided tours. Conceived and designed by Dr. Shirley G. Cross, it’s is a living museum for those interested in the study and use of wildflowers and is a highlight of the Green Briar experience. Situated in front of the 1780 homestead, the one-third acre garden was designed for teaching, has over 300 plants and is maintained by a small group of dedicated volunteers.
Guided Wildflower Garden Tours are held every Wednesday in June, July, and August at 10am. Cost is $4 for members; $6 for non-members.
