The Memorial Garden is dedicated in memory of NIEHS employees who have died. The area contains a mix of native and domesticated plant species, including sea oats. The garden also serves as part of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Highway. Bee blocks were added to the garden to attract cavity dwelling bees, including orchard mason bees. Corrugated plastic pipe is installed around tree trunks to prevent beaver damage.
