“Some may be surprised to learn that Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve is the only accredited museum in the country dedicated to native plants,” says Sarah Norris, Director of Donor and Partner Relations at the Preserve. “Events like our annual Virtual Auction allow us a wonderful opportunity to raise crucial funds and promote visibility for our uniquely important property and mission.”
The funds raised from the Virtual Auction will support Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve’s mission to inspire the appreciation and use of native plants.
Founded in 1934 and located on 134 acres in New Hope, the Preserve provides a habitat for a documented collection of nearly 800 of Pennsylvania’s 2,000 native plant species growing in situ (“in place”) within sustainable, recognized plant communities that are cultivated, catalogued and interpreted for visitors. Among the Preserve’s plant collection are over 40 species that are classified as rare, threatened or endangered in Pennsylvania.
More than 40,000 visitors experience the wonder and beauty of Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve annually. With over 4.5 miles of trails to explore, guided tours by Preserve naturalists, a native plant nursery, visitors center, gift shop and a year-round series of educational programming, the Preserve is the nation’s premiere destination for native plant immersion.
