Hike through the deep woods and observe the native plants alongside the Woodland Garden trail. Relax in the gazebo and take in all the sights and sounds of nature. The Log Cabin and Beard-Green Cemetery are located nearby.

A path and area created by community collaboration, the Woodland Garden is home to an array of native plants including buttonbush, foamflower, wild geranium, large-flower trillium, Jack-in-the-pulpit. Each year, during our Maple Syrup Days, sugar maple trees in this area provide the sap that is made into delicious maple syrup each year inside the Log Cabin. Visit late February through early March to experience the process in action.
The Beard-Green Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Licking County, Ohio.  The cemetery is owned by and named after the families of Revolutionary War soldiers John Beard and Benjamin Green who were early settlers of this area.  It is thought that the first burial, an infant, took place in 1801.  The cemetery is still used by members of the Beard and Green families.
