Resident families of Minneapolis real estate are invited to come and see the beauty of the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary which is open from April 1st to October 15th. The Garden and Bird Sanctuary is available for visitors to enjoy its over 500 plant species and 130 different types of birds. The Garden maintains 15 acres consisting of different areas of habitat that foster a myriad of different kinds of birds, plants, and animals.
As the oldest public wildflower garden in the nation its birth is traced back to when botanist Eloise Butler petitioned for a natural botanic and native flora preserve to be created so that the unique species in the area would not be lost as the city grew. Minneapolis real estate has continued to grow and expand, and thankfully families in Minneapolis have been able to enjoy all the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden has to offer throughout the years since its opening on April 27th, 1907. Its inception in the early years of the city has guaranteed the preservation of native flora and fauna just as Eloise Butler desired.
To promote the public’s education and answer questions friendly staff and volunteers are available at the Garden’s Martha Crone Visitor Shelter from 10am until closing from Monday through Saturday, and from noon until closing on Sundays. The Wildflower Garden’s trails are also provided with 49 interpretive stations for guided and self-guided tours, so that families can get the most out of their visit. At the Visitor Shelter they will also find informative natural history displays and reference materials. The Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary has kept the vision of its creators alive through the years, and it continues to provide families living in Minneapolis real estate the experience of local nature in all its changing beauty.
