Ethno-botanical Garden, Rainy Lake Visitor Center, Voyageurs National Park

This 1-acre garden was once home to a barren field of Reed Canary Grass. A highly invasive plant that spreads quickly and is not native to the area. After years of planning and planting the garden is in full-bloom of native plants. At the heart of the garden sits a replicated Ojibwe Indian village. The garden represents plants of long ago the Ojibwe traditionally used, use today, and reflects the native plant life of Voyageurs National Park. There is a 1/4 mile accessible trail through the garden.
