Keweenaw Wild Ones Garden Tour

August 6, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Keweenaw Wild Ones invites the gardening community to take part in a free tour of three local gardens featuring native plants. The tour is set for Sunday, Aug. 6, and runs from 1 to 3 p.m.
It begins at the Hancock Beach. 

Hancock Beach features a large bioswale in its parking lot. A bioswale is like a rain garden, designed to capture excess stormwater. This island of deep-rooted flowers and grasses helps prevent erosion in the city park. Plus, it provides a refuge for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife and a colorful landscape for beach visitors.

The second stop on the tour is a Hancock garden famous for its nonstop flowers that features many natives. The gardener will be giving away free seedlings.

The third and final garden is southeast of Dollar Bay in the Point Mills area. This rambling landscape is a butterfly magnet and overlooks the Keweenaw Waterway. Check out the prairie installed over the stamp sand shoreline. The gardener will be encouraging visitors to collect seeds to start their own plants, so bring an appropriate container if you are interested.
