Natural Areas

Today, the Arboretum's natural areas in the lower meadows look almost as they did when the property was the Morrises’ estate. They include wetlands, meadows, and the woodlands along the Wissahickon Creek. These areas are a thriving example of an ecosystem that supports an abundance of native plant life, as well as year-round and migratory bird populations.
