There are wonderful things happening in this place. It is a great spot to take an adventure with a lovely property to explore and many interactive sites. They are doing good work with Rockbridge County Schools to bring outdoor education to classrooms. Consider supporting this organization with your time and resources.

Lovely property! Laidback trails and really nice staff. Plan on coming back when things are in bloom. Fun looking kids area and activities.

The Boxerwood Nature Center is a wonderful place to take young children (perhaps 10 and younger). They will get quite dirty playing in the various areas. Yes, there is a small crack for them to jump over. It covers more area than I expected. Much to see and experience. Donations are accepted upon entrance.

A most beautiful nature center. My sister's and I had a peaceful relaxing stroll through the winding trails leading from one incredible scene to another. BOXERWOOD is a special place for all to enjoy. Beautiful experience. Highly recommended! Thank you to all who have worked hard to make Boxerwood Nature Center and Woodland Gardens such a unique and inspiring enchanted place to visit.
