Traveling Vest Virginia
West Virginia Botanic Garden
Going Natural In Monongalia County



EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO






Imagine beautifully landscaped gardens reflecting on a shimmering pond. Trails weave from bright flowering meadows into a cool, shaded woodland. Streams sparkle beneath stately hemlocks. Some visitors stand silently, resting in the splendor of the vista; others energetically explore this wonderful community resource, the West Virginia Botanic Garden.

Begun as only a dream in 2000, the WVBG is on its way to becoming a reality on the 82-acre former Tibbs Run Reservoir property off the Tyrone Road in Monongalia County, WV. The former 15-acre basin has been transformed into two smaller pools with islands and aquatic plant displays. The old water works, still present, will stand as a link to the past.
