The Native Plant Demonstration Garden and Trail is a joint project of the Walton County Master Gardeners, Northwest Florida State College, and the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance. It is a site for beauty and inspiration as well as public education. The Native Plant Demonstration Garden demonstrates best practices for the use of native plants, water conservation, and other Florida-friendly gardening techniques in the home landscape. The multi-modal Native Plant Trail wraps around the south-and-western edge of the college’s South Walton Center. A corresponding Trail Guide refers visitors to markers along the Trail, providing information about native plants that occur in our local ecosystem.
