Garden, Limnology

The Limnology Garden lies right outside the west end of the Arthur D. Hasler Laboratory of Limnology, providing a short trail to the Howard Temin Path or just a nice respite from the office.

In the garden is a commemorative rock inscribed with these words about the Limnology Garden:

Continuous Contributions to
Science, Education, Outreach, and Public Service
on Inland Waters
of Wisconsin and Beyond
The Birth of Limnology in North America
at Lake Mendota
in 1875

The garden is also home to several beautiful native plants. The Limnology Garden Plants Guide (below) may help you identify some of the plants – native and invasive. If you are confident of your ability to identify invasives, please feel free to pull them (roots and all) and toss them into the trash.
