Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve is a 134 acre nature preserve, botanical garden, and accredited museum located at 1635 River Road, New Hope, Pennsylvania. Over 700 of Pennsylvania's 2,000 native plant species grow naturally. For this richness of native plants, credit the Preserve's diverse habitats—mature hardwood forests, a meadow, steep hillsides, a creek, two ponds and other wetlands—and three distinct geological zones that influence their overlying soils. Credit also the fact that, since its founding in 1934, the Preserve's dramatic landscape has been actively managed to promote native plant diversity. It is open daily, except for major holidays, April-June, and closed on Mondays July-March
