The Middlebury Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Middlebury Parks and the Friends of the Middlebury Parks, announces the development of the Learning Corridor along the Middlebury Greenway on the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.
The Learning Corridor is a special half mile section of the Greenway from the Little Elkhart River to the location of the former Middlebury railroad depot, near Wayne Avenue. It offers visitors many opportunities to learn about Middlebury’s history, nature, wildlife, and enjoy the diverse flora and fauna offered in different gardens.
The sites along the Learning Corridor includes; the historic trestle bridge, Krider Worlds Fair Garden, rain gardens, the Quilt Garden, the Middlebury Community Historical Museum, the Habitat Garden, the Blue Bird Trail, the Right Tree-Right Place Arboretum and the site of the former Middlebury railroad depot.
Monica Yoder, Secretary of the Middlebury Park Board, said “Along the Middlebury Learning Corridor you will find several informational signs explaining the different sites.  You will find this a place to exercise your mind, while taking a relaxing walk with history, nature and wildlife”.
