Hershey Foundation, a 501(c)3 not-for- profit organization • Dedicated to horticultural excellence while providing valuable learning opportunities & inspiring memorable experiences - a must visit!
  • Phipps Garden Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania • Since 1893, visitors have been drawn to the natural wonder and beauty contained within the 19 indoor and outdoor gardens of Phipps Conservatory • A computer controlled de-icing system that automatically warms the sidewalks using waste heat at the front-entrance walkway to the Welcome Center during snow and ice conditions • Phipps is open daily from 9:30 am to 5 pm and until 10 pm on Friday
  • Bowman‘s Hill Wildflower Preserve - New Hope, Pennsylvania • Bowmans Hill Wildflower Preserve is a 134-acre property located in Bucks County in southeastern Pennsylvania • Picturesque trails wind through eastern deciduous woodland, open meadow, along a small pond and Pidcock Creek. • Of the approximately 2000 species native to Pennsylvania, the Preserve is home to nearly 1000 of them.
  • Brandywine River Museum Wildflower Gardens - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania • Designed by horticulturist F.M. Mooberry and begun in 1974 • In 1979, Lady Bird Johnson dedicated the gardens to Ford B. Draper and Henry A. Thouron, two individuals who played important roles in the establishment of the Brandywine Conservancy • A unique feature of the gardens is the rainwater detention basin located between the two paved parking areas and it provides a wetland habitat for several species of wildflower

  • Bartram‘s Garden - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania • On this site more than 250 years ago, John Bartram, a Quaker farmer, decided to spend the rest of his life seeking to understand all forms of nature • Historic core is fundamentally a collection of Bartram plants – species collected, grown, and studied by the Bartram family from 1728 – 1850, with a focus on native plants of eastern North America • Today, gardening enthusiasts, history buffs, scholars and children enjoy John Bartrams legacy, now called Bartrams Garden
