Project Proposal: ABRAMS CREEK WETLANDS - Winchester, VA

Calcareous muck fens are important because their limestone bedrock creates a distinctive water chemistry where they harbor rare or endangered plants. Scientists suggest that calcareous fens are the rarest of North American wetland
types. Abrams Creek Wetlands Preserve, one of these habitats, contains over 300 plant species, 20 state-rare and 2 found nowhere else in Virginia. Stopping invading trees from extinguishing this natural treasure and providing visitor
education will restore this fen for future generations.

Project Proposal: FLORA AND FAUNA - Bear State Park, NY

The Jane Colden Native Woodland Garden, vital for a redesigned visitor experience, incorporates new plantings around rebuilt native animal exhibits. Self-guided visitors strolling this Appalachian Trail landscaped section can closely view flora and fauna. Native plantings based on the historic Botanical Manuscript of Jane Colden (1724-1760) come alive, supported by information on Trailside signs and web-site. This Woodland Garden complements Trailside's educational mission for many, diverse and urban visitors to understand and enjoy nature's offerings.

Project Proposal: SNIFF AND SAVOR - Pittsburgh, PA

Sniff and Savor Garden at Pittsburgh Botanic Garden will offer an oasis of fragrant and edible plants enticing visitors to touch, smell and taste. Smart garden design will create a fully inclusive, accessible sensory garden with multigenerational
appeal. Part of a remarkable environmental transformation of terrain deeply damaged by coal mining into a world-class botanical destination, Pittsburgh Botanic Garden is using horticulture, environmental stewardship, education and community enthusiasm to revitalize damaged landscape and enrich lives.
