Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve is a nature preserve, botanical garden, and accredited museum consisting of 134 acres featuring hundreds of species of native plants, in a setting of picturesque woodlands, meadows, a pond and a creek. Of the approximately 2000 species native to Pennsylvania, the Preserve is home to nearly 800 of them. Of these, more than 80 species are rare, threatened or endangered native plants designated as Plants of Special Concern in Pennsylvania. A deer enclosure fence surrounds and protects 100 acres for the past 80 years. This is what the forest is suppose to look like. Over two and a half miles of picturesque trails offer some of the best hiking in all of Bucks County.
