Margaret Lawrence Simon Dogwood Meadow

The eight-acre meadow and surrounding areas feature a large stand of native Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida), which produce showy white flowers in spring. Dogwoods produce colorful fruit in summer and have attractive fall foliage.

The meadow also features many varieties of native wildflowers and grasses. Take a moment to enjoy the diversity pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, as they visit the blooms. 

The Meadow is also a great place to look for birds.  A number of Bluebird houses are located along the edge of the Meadow and invite nesting birds in spring and summer.   The meadow path goes by the Highmark Gazebo and an Apiary which is home to European Honeybees (Apis mellifera).
