The garden is also host to many public events throughout the year.
Our ethno-botanical timeline will transport you back through a timeline that begins at the end of the last Ice Age and continues through modern times. The garden contains a replica of a pit house similar in style to the ancient houses found on the Keystone Archeological Site directly east of the garden.
The Keystone Archeological Site dates back 4000 years to the Archaic period when native peoples shifted from being hunter and gathers to a reliance on cultivated plants. The site has remnants of over 40 pit houses and has become a Texas State Archeological Landmark. According to National Geographic magazine, the site may be on the oldest and largest villages of its kind in the United States. Field trips and scheduled tours are welcome.
