This is a pleasant stop and a nice walk through a collection of tropical trees and plants. This USDA facility houses the Ag Research Service, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Stop at the office to sign in and get a map. Most specimens are labeled. N18.12.416 W067.08.329
