College of William and Mary. Wildflower Refuge Committee

Name
College of William and Mary. Wildflower Refuge Committee
Historical Note
Located near Crim Dell, the wildflower refuge at the College of William and Mary shelters four Trillium species, a variety of ferns, and a number of common wildflowers. It is also home to several rare species that have been rescued from construction sites. A resolution passed by the College Board of Visitors in 1976 stated that the refuge is not to be used as a construction site, but rather it is to be maintained in its present natural state.
