Are there any public gardens, arboretums or botanical gardens in NEPA?

I think there's one near Milford. -Off to look it up-

http://cwis.marywood.edu/arboretum/
Marywood University Arboretum
Adams Ave, Scranton

http://www.dorflinger.org/
this one has a wildlife sanctuary
White Mills, PA

http://www.fs.fed.us/gt/
Grey Towers
Milford, PA
this one was the one I was thinking of, I'm interested in visiting sometime soon so if you go you'll have to let us know what it's like, it looks beautiful!

It's a start. http://www.visitpa.com/index.aspx , http://www.visitnepa.org/homepage.php These are some of the sites that I use frequently to find things to do.

NEPA appeals to the public not to capture crocodiles

LOL @ second link! I wish there were more botanical gardens around here. That would be such an asset to the community.

Thanks for the links everyone! I'm going to be in NEPA in June and thought I might visit a botanic garden whilst I was there. Also, they are places I'll put in my job search list should I decide to go back to school for a masters in horticulture.

Here are a few more:

Welkinweir
Green Valleys Association (http://www.greenvalleys.org/welkinweir.asp - broken link)
I haven't been there.

Chanticleer
Chanticleer Garden
This is one of my favorites.

Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve
Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve
This is best seen when the spring ephemerals are putting on a show, but worth a stop if you're in the area.

Hortulus Farm
Welcome to Hortulus Farm Nursery & Gardens
This one looks good. There's 30 acres of gardens, historic farm with buildings and you get to buy plants on the way out.

Thanks... Getting to buy plants on the way out could make it a very expensive day out for me! I'm a plant-a-holic. I'm considering getting my masters in horticulture just so I can be with plants all day long!
