See You in the Spring

Garden in the Woods, Nasami Farm, and the Garden Shops are closed for the winter and scheduled to re-open in April 2021. Please check back for details.

At this time, all Native Plant Trust sanctuaries are open only to local residents to avoid overcrowding. If you live near a sanctuary and arrive to find lots of cars or a busy entrance, please seek a different place for your walk or come back later. While walking, please observe physical-distancing guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.
