Historical Scenes

The Friends of the Wild Flower Garden, Inc was founded for those who are interested in promoting and perpetuating this one remaining area so close to a busy metropolis. We should exert every effort to preserve these natural conditions as a rest center for those who need them. Here can be seen in season practically all native flowers of Minnesota. Here it is a pleasure to follow the trails through the Reserve, some of them ancient Indian trails. We are most grateful to those who have given of their time and skill to insure a successful garden. What a beautiful heritage to leave to the coming generation. Former Curator Martha Crone
