Elizabeth Knight Britton

Morning Eye Candy: Britton Rock

Posted in Photography on May 11 2013, by Ann Rafalko

One of the centerpieces of the newly opened Native Plant Garden is Britton Rock, a monument to one of the founders of The New York Botanical Garden, Elizabeth Britton. Elizabeth was an advocate for native plants, especially in the form of wildflower preservation, so it is supremely fitting to have this monument to her in this gorgeous garden.
