Bayfield in Bloom Garden Tour: Brownstone Trail Native Plant Garden
June 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Stop by to enjoy the native plant garden that welcomes visitors to the main entrance of the Brownstone Trail. This garden was established in 2013 and is maintained by Landmark Conservancy staff with the help of volunteers. These native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions and provide seasonal changes in color throughout the year. They also provide habitat and food to a variety of animals including pollinators (like insects and birds).
Their root systems hold soil in place and increase the soil’s capacity to hold water, reducing runoff. This year Landmark is partnering with Wildflower Woods, who will be selling native plants at this stop, with a portion of the proceeds donated to Landmark. More than 30 species of native wildflowers and grasses will be available for those interested in planting their own pollinator-friendly, native plant garden this year!
The popular Brownstone Trail opened in 1996 in partnership with private landowners who granted trail easements to Landmark Conservancy. It travels 2.25 miles alongside Lake Superior, connecting the City of Bayfield to Port Superior Marina near Pikes Creek. Landmark staff and board will be available to answer questions.
Location: South 3rd Street and Wilson Avenue in Bayfield. The garden is situated along the trail, behind the public boat launch restrooms. The exact location is outlined in yellow on the image displayed below.
