Looking to take a picnic break or to stretch your legs during a long trip? Bowling Green Assembly features a wildlife habitat spread across 75 acres, roughly the size of 83 football fields. Within the space are 42,000 pounds of ground-up ergonomic mats reused from inside the plant to form the foundation for a picnic area. Students planted sunflowers along the route, which also features blue bird boxes planted by a local Boy Scout troop. The team collaborates with environmental experts to best choose appropriate native species for the grounds.
Hours: Please check the website for plant closure dates as internal business matters can cause unexpected cancellation of tours. Public tours ($7) are offered Monday - Friday at 8:30am, 11:30am, and 2:00pm CST.Address:
