Volunteers Continue to ID Plants on McIntire Botanical Garden Site

Volunteers have been working since early spring to inventory plants on the site of the future McIntire Botanical Garden. The property is located on 8.5 acres in the northeastern section of Charlottesville’s McIntire Park. “This survey of plants will establish a useful benchmark,” explained Peter McIntosh, president of the McIntire Botanical Garden Board. “When the garden is designed, we’ll use the inventory to preserve as many of the existing plants as possible.”
