Quarry Gardens at Schuyler
The Details

Natural area and botanical garden for public education and enjoyment. Schuyler has been the soapstone capital of the world since 1880’s. Six quarries under these gardens were worked from 1950s to 1970s, then used as dump-sites, and finally abandoned to grow wild. Now the gardens around these quarries include 40 acres of habitat and plant communities in various eco-zones with more than 600 species of plants and animals found on site, 2 miles of walking trail, native plant galleries, demonstration garden, and visitor center exhibits.
