As you walk the trails, you'll see small signs that have been placed at locations of interest. Just follow the instructions on the sign and use your cell phone to call in for an audio tour to learn more about each location. Alternately, you can browse the links online to both hear the audio tour and view supplemental media for each tour stop.

Most people come to this garden to see butterflies, but there are plenty of other insects here. One of the most important groups is the bees. Most of us think “honey bee” when we hear the word “bee,” but did you know that honey bees are not native to the United States? They were brought here in 1622 by early colonists who recognized their importance to agriculture.
In addition to the striking Pileated and Red-headed Woodpeckers, West 11th Street Park is home to four other species of woodpeckers.
