Green Bay Botanic Garden. Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.
The Green Bay Botanic Garden is relatively young, opening to the public in 1996. Its 47 acres captures the beauty of Northeast Wisconsin. The property, known as “the old Larsen orchard”, was assembled by William Larsen in the early 1900's to grow apples for his wholesale fruit and vegetable business. In the 1970’s a group called Plants in the Urban Environment started the work that eventually led to the creation of the botanic garden. This acreage lies in Hobart, WI on the land was once part of the Oneida Indian Reservation. I was so impressed by the garden that I became a member on the first day that I visited.
