- One of the University's best-kept secrets, this two-acre garden nurtures some 600 species of plants and herbs reputed to have medicinal uses. University botanists and herbalists tend the plants, but anyone can visit, and May through October the garden even has free noon tours every second Sunday. Everything is well-labeled with the plants divided into seven growing "rooms," some formal, some naturalistic. Even if you can't tell echinacea from comfrey, stop by and be rejuvenated by a stroll. Admission is free.
