Details

Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve is a 134 acre nature preserve, botanical garden, and accredited museum located at 1635 River Road (Pennsylvania Route 32), New Hope, Pennsylvania. It is open daily, except for major holidays, April–June, and closed on Mondays July–March; an admission fee is charged to nonmembers. A non-profit organization, Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve Association Inc., maintains the park in accordance to a management agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources & Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. Today, the preserve contains 700 of the 2,000 plant species native to Pennsylvania and the Delaware Valley, growing in a naturalistic setting of woodlands, meadows, ponds, and Pidcock Creek, with about 4.5 miles of walking trails. It is an excellent site for bird-watching. The visitor center includes a collection of nearly 100 taxidermic birds, over 200 nests, and some 600 eggs, given in 1972 by local ornithologist Charles Platt and displayed in dioramas, exhibit cases and photographic panels.
