information kiosks at the Shaw Woods each feature a Green Roof -
living vegetation covers the roof surface.
Grant Dobson designed and created these unique features.
This experimental Green Roof features plants commonly found along the trails in the Shaw Woods.
selected plants that are drought and cold tolerant.
Common Polypody (Polypodium virginianum) and Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) : found on Johnny's Lookout Trail and Snake River Trail (both opening 2013)
Partridgeberry (Mitchella repens) : found on Old Growth Loop and Great Gully Trail
Others may be featured as the planting evolves and conditions dictate.
