Horner McLaughlin Woods


Located a few miles north of the Botanical Gardens, Horner McLaughlin Woods is a 90-acre site that was donated to the U-M by the Michigan Botanical Club in 1964 as a plant and wildflower sanctuary. It contains oak-hickory woodlands, old-field and rolling terrain, several small woodland ponds and streams, and a sizable buttonbush swamp.
