The Molly Hollar Wildscape is located in Arlington's Veterans Park in the 2900 block of Spanish Trail. The garden's mission is to educate the community to use native plants to conserve resources, attract wildlife and connect with nature.
In 1994 members of Arlington Conservation Council and the Arlington Organic Garden Club founded the Molly Hollar Wildscape on half an acre to trumpet ecosystem preservation and the benefits of native plants. Today the Wildscape has expanded into a splendid four-acre enhancement of a last lone stretch of the Eastern Cross Timbers, which runs through central Arlington but has been devastated by development.
Tucked away in one of the city's most popular parks, the Wildscape serves as a living lab, the natural elements providing a backdrop for programs and tours.
Garden clubs, church groups, civic organizations may all arrange a tour. Impromptu teaching of visitors frequently interrupts the weekly workdays. For its advocates and tireless volunteers, the Wildscape is a little piece of heaven.
