The Henry Botanic Garden’s 42 acres of woods, fields, and streams are majestic in the fall. It is hard to imagine that this glorious, ever-changing, natural rainbow palette is so close to the hustle of a major city. As one recent visitor observed: “After spending time at Henry I feel better than I felt when I arrived.”  To that point, Henry’s ancient stony outcroppings, cooling alpine sites, lush dappled forests, dark riparian glens, and broad open meadowlands play a significant role in purifying our air, filtering the water, controlling flooding, and preserving a pristine view shed.
