The Whiting Forest

Dow Gardens

The Whiting Forest is a 54 acre expansion at Dow Gardens, a public garden in Michigan.  Included within the expansion is the Canopy Walk, a structure that meanders through an existing pine forest and peaking out over landscape vistas at the edge of the forest.  The program also includes a new visitor center with outdoor terrace, a large orchard that explores the history of the apple in north America, an outdoor classroom with stacked limestone walls, and an amphitheater that looks over a restored stream corridor.
