The Conservation Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, sometimes called the Bog Garden, is unfortunately one of the frequently overlooked features of our amazing Garden. Granted the Garden is 30 acres, but I tell people that it's pretty compact, so it's really (relatively) easy to see nearly everything.
"The Garden has been the recipient of grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Georgia Department of Resources since 1998. A mountain cataract bog display complete with native species, rare conifers, pitcher plants, orchids and interpretive signage was created in 2007 with funding from the Wildlife Conservation Society."

Some know about the Garden's orchid conservation efforts and its amphibian research efforts, but just when I think you know everything the Garden is doing, I learn something new. I'm incredibly impressed with all that they do and that they do it with such passion.
The conservation Garden is especially attractive to kids, too...it often has carnivorous plants or "pitcher plants" and Venus fly traps! And it's wide range of color is attractive as well. Personally, I love that it's one of the most beautiful spots in the Garden...overlooking parts of Piedmont Park, the Atlanta skyline is directly in the background.
