Located near the Crim Dell at the College of William and Mary, the Wildflower Refuge shelters four Trillium species, a variety of ferns, and a number of common wildflowers. It is also home to several rare species that have been rescued from construction sites. A resolution passed by the Board of Visitors in 1976 stated that the refuge is not to be used as a construction site, but rather it is to be maintained in its present natural state. The Wildflower Refuge Amphitheater was constructed across from the Crim Dell in 1979.
