The Wildlife Garden, designed to attract wild birds and animals, features native plants of the southeastern United States. It is certified by the National Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Wildlife Habitat program. Located on the west side of the museum, this garden includes a stone-lined pond with a waterfall nestled among beautiful river birches. This habitat hosts many birds, small mammals, and other wildlife. To attract these, the garden provides food, water, cover, and places to raise their young. This demonstration garden was created to inspire others to “garden for wildlife” around their homes — from small city gardens to large, suburban lots.
