Carroll Native Plant Garden

On July 13, 2012, hard-working volunteers from across the campus, along with our fabulous Grounds crew, planted our native plant garden. Landscape designer and artist Kari Brittain was on hand to teach, direct, haul plants, and realize her planting scheme. Many thanks go out to both the Kelsey Chapter of the Montana Native Plant Society and the Last Chance Audubon Society for their generous support of this project.

The native plant garden is located in front of the Corette Library on Carroll's campus. Click on the Gardens link in the navigation list to the left for more details.
