A large deer population poses a big challenge to conserving this garden’s plant diversity. In an effort to restore what naturally grows here, we constructed the fence next to this path in 2015 to protect newly planted species from deer. The plants were grown at Cornell Botanic Gardens using locally collected wild seeds. Trees include red oak, white oak, shagbark hickory, black birch, and flowering dogwood. Shrubs include witch hazel, and maple leaf viburnum and herbaceous plants include blue stem goldenrod, white wood aster, and wild ryes.
