Lincoln Memorial Garden & Nature Center

Founded in 1936 and designed by Danish landscape architect Jens Jensen, the idea of the Lincoln Memorial Garden & Nature Garden was thought up by Illinois native Harriet Knudson. She wanted to create a memorial garden of plants native to three states that Abraham Lincoln had lived in—Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. The garden and nature center features over 5 miles of trails and plants such as Dutchman’s breeches, bloodroot, and trout lilies.

FUN FACTS

The diverse world of plants is perhaps the weirdest, and most fascinating, of all living things. Bamboo can grow over three feet in one day (you can literally watch it grow). There are 600 species of carnivorous plants, which trap and digest insects, frogs, or small birds (if a vegetarian eats this plant, are they still a vegetarian?). The world’s largest flower, Rafflesia, can grow up to three feet in diameter (how big would a bouquet be…). Do a little digging on your next trip to a botanical garden (not literally!), and see what interesting plant facts you can find.
