    About Us

    During her lifetime Caroline Dormon received scores of tributes, but the most significant came from a handful of friends who wanted to fund and administer a foundation which would perpetuate Caroline?s work with trees and native plants. Several months before her death, they suggested that she will Briarwood to the Foundation for Preservation of the Caroline Dormon Nature Preserve, Inc. Within a decade, the Foundation completed a Headquarters Building, which became a center for educational purposes in the conservation field and a home for a curator. For college, university and high school groups who use the facilities of Briarwood, it has become a Mecca for their horticultural studies.
