Previously located at Wesleyan College, the Native Plant Garden was relocated to Macon's
Museum of Arts and Sciences in June 2010.
Master Gardener Extension Volunteers worked long and hard to transplant existing plants and
install new native plants. The move to the Museum's grounds involved many steps over many months and required a lot of hard work by dedicated
Master Gardener Extension Volunteers. The new garden location required removal and eradication of invasive plants, building of pathways,
identification of plants and development of a comprehensive plant list.
The Native Plant Garden continues to be a labor of love, especially for those that enjoy and promote Georgia native
plants. New native plants are added annually and hopes are to expand the garden in the future
To explore the Native Plant Garden, head over to the Museum of Arts and Sciences located at 4182 Forsyth Road,
