Public Welcome Free Event Home Garden Tour

The McMullen House Bed & Breakfast Garden is a native plant and butterfly garden that surrounds the house and is about a third of an acre in size.  The garden began mostly as lawn and has been planted section by section.  It is designed to host many different species of butterflies and insects and provide habitat for other animals.  Highlights include the milkweeds for monarch butterflies, violets (Viola spp.) that are planted around the house, goldenrods (Solidago spp.) for late season insects, and the moss lawn for fireflies.

Robert Coxe, one of the owners of the Bed & Breakfast, received his undergraduate degree in Plant Taxonomy and Systematics from UNC-Asheville, his Masters degree in Ecology at UNC-Charlotte, and worked on his PhD in Forest Ecology at West Virginia University. Robert has worked as a Research Scientist at the Biota of North America Program (BONAP), Ecologist at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, and as the State Ecologist of Delaware.  Robert currently has a blog about native plants and butterfly gardens at (https://shop.mcmullenhouse.com) and has a web design firm, Silphium Design LLC (https://silphiumdesign.com), that specializes in websites for environmental organizations and businesses.

This garden tour  will be followed by a 1pm Hike at Oil Creek State Park w/ WPA Botanical Society (https://www.botsocwpa.org/).

Please note the all garden tours require registration. Many of these tours will fill quickly! Preference will be given to our members, but we will leave spots open to the public whenever possible. Thank you for your support!
