Botanical Gardens

 

The other day I uploaded a file on botanical gardens in Wisconsin and got to thinking there might be some interest on making it a nation wide thing. I don't know if the majority would like to have a combined file or keep the states separate. Any interest and ideas?

Community project.

This will be another POI Factory Community built project. For those of you that have a Botanical Garden that you would like to see featured in this file please list it here with all the info including name, address, phone number and the Coordinates so that Don has an easy time maintaining the file for us;)

Thanks Don for making this happen, this is going to be great.

It just so happens that Jon and I will be going to our own local Botanical Garden here in Boise Idaho this wednesday for our daughters field trip with school.

I will post my Contribution later this afternoon.

Sure thing Miss POI,

I edited the posts above with the corresponding latitude and longitude, except for this last one, whose coordinates are posted here. Seems one cannot edit a post once someone else quotes from it : )
