The George Washington Cemetery attracts nature’s beauty
Modern cemeteries with gardens are an inviting environmental habitat for wildlife, such as the George Washington Cemetery,
(located near the Greenbelt,College park areas of Maryland), that features expansive lawns,gardens, Oak and Holly trees, and three ponds!
A peaceful resting place for love one’s in this garden cemetery and inviting nature wildlife, especially migrating birds and butterflies.
Many visitors take photos of their family plots with nature tree surrounds. The Swallowtail Butterflies are a joy to view in summer.
The lawn plots and symmetrical shrub gardens, one can view many bird species in the spring/ autumn season.
You may sight Egrets and Herons near the ponds. The garden ponds enhance the growth of much native plant life.
The lilies, reeves, aquatic plants are a feeding haven for the Geese and the Great Blue Herons catching fish.
I have sighted migrating Warbler’s ,Egret, herons and also American Robins, Northern Cardinals, Catbirds, Mocking Birds, Redwing Black Birds,
perched in the Oak and Holly trees. The shrub gardens ponds attract many of breeding creatures, that nest in boundary trees and produce young in spring summer..
