Montgomery Botanical Center

A nonprofit botanic garden established in 1959 and specializing in palms and cycads, Montgomery Botanical Center keeps living specimens from wild plant populations worldwide. The scientific collections are available for study in Montgomery's 120-acre botanical garden. Montgomery Botanical Center is home for various botanical research projects. It conserves rare species of palms, cycads and other rare plants; and educates the community through workshops, lectures, publications, and tours of its scientific plant collections. I had a rare privilege of touring this center today and was thoroughly impressed with the site. Here is my favorite view inside this great place fit for a meditation retreat.
