The International Peace Garden is by its very nature a quiet place.
But there have been some big changes at the 2,300-acre botanical garden along the Canadian border. You just may not have heard about them.
“When we look at North Dakota, we promote cowboys and Indians and shopping in Fargo and Grand Forks,” said Doug Hevenor, the garden’s chief executive officer. “But there are so many more things to see and do in the state than just drive down to Medora.”
An iconic image for the Peace Garden has been the floral clock that greets visitors. But there also is the 22-ton peace tower, a memorial made from steel girders from the World Trade Center, the recently added North American Game Warden Museum and an expansion of the conservatory to include 7,000 cacti.
