Natural Habitats

Natural habitats and native plants abound at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Discover the bog at Green Heron Pond, an "off the beaten track" nature experience featuring a half-mile trail and refurbished boardwalk. Stand in the Prairie and hear the sounds of swishing grass and birdsong. Visit Spring Peeper Meadow, a wetland restoration project that is now home to almost two dozen species of sedge, grass and wildflowers. Find native plants of the deciduous woodlands in the Wildflower Garden, including Minnesota's state flower, the Showy Lady's Slipper.
