Find your way to the Four Corners City of Farmington New Mexico. Find Main Street and go to the Intersection of Main and Browning Parkway (there is a Chevron station at this intersection). Turn South on Browning Pkwy (516). The first road on the right after crossing the bridge is Burnham Rd. This road leads into the Farmers Market area and the Riverside Nature Center, turn right. Turn right again into the large parking area, you will see a barn to the left and the road Ys off. Stay to the far left and head toward the Riverside Nature Center. There are yellow gates with a parking area to the Nature Center you will have to park here and go on foot. Follow the path past the Nature Center to the Herb and Xeriscape Gardens on the right side. Take the redrock path into the gardens and follow it around to explore, read the signs and learn about the plant here. Eventually you will find a plant sign that says,"Yarrow - Achillea Millefolium - Aroma, Medicine," at a small brick alcove. Take a break here and look behind the wall on the side opposite of the plant sign. The box is under some rocks behind the wall. Please be very discreet, this can be a busy place and the grounds are well kept. Do a good job of putting things back the way you found them.

The NATURE CENTER IS IN BERG PARK and you can find it from inside the park if you don't want to drive around to this parking area.
