34. Adkins Arboretum
Typical Woodland and Marshland
Adkins Arboretum is a 440-acre garden and preserve dedicated to promoting the appreciation and conservation of the region’s native plants. Walking along streams, over wetlands, and through woodlands allows visitors to experience the kinds of landscapes that freedom seekers on the Underground Railroad passed through on their way north.
The Arboretum offers programs year-round in ecology, horticulture and natural history for all ages, including special programming related to survival strategies used by fleeing slaves traversing these landscapes generations ago. Five miles of paths feature streams, meadows and rich bottomland forest.
