Sarah P. Duke Gardens

On Tuesday, April 1 at 7pm Dr. Kathryn Kennedy, from the Center for Plant Conservation, St. Louis, MO, will be coming to the Duke Gardens to give a presentation on "America's Vanishing Flora." Please contact the Gardens if you are interested in attending (919-684-3698).

If you aren't able to make it for the lecture, come enjoy the Gardens another day. Located on 55 acres in the middle of Duke University, the Gardens provide a nice atmosphere for an afternoon picnic or quick weekend getaway. The Gardens also contain a great display of native flora in the H. L. Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, which includes trillium, adder's tongue, and many more spring woodland flowers, as well as a plenty of native trees and shrubs.

Don't forget to stop by the ponds to enjoy the sunning turtles and quacking waterfowl!
