Woodlands Garden is a seven acre mostly wooded public garden in Decatur, Georgia.[1][2] It serves as a native plant habitat for the Piedmont, with over 30 species of trees.[1] Ferns, wildflowers, and shrubs are also common features. It became protected greenspace in 2002,[1] and was donated by the Morse family to become publicly accessible.[3] The property has been influenced by landscape architect Edward L. Daugherty,[4] among others,[3] and Ruby Bock is the coordinator.[2] Volunteers help maintain the property, partially by removing invasive species, every other Wednesday morning.[1]
