Ready to explore the Arboretum’s wild side? Join us for a walk through Central Woodland, one of the Arboretum’s minimally maintained natural areas, and learn about the history and ecology of these often-overlooked “urban wilds”. We’ll see traces of New England history and glimpses of the future among remnant native plants and encroaching invaders.
As part of Boston’s City Nature Challenge weekend, participants in this event will have the option to use the iNaturalist phone app to record plant and wildlife data in the field and submit observations. This event is open to guests of all ages, and you’ll need a smartphone with a camera to participate in the citizen science portion. All necessary iNaturalist training will be provided.
Meet at the intersection of Conifer Path and Valley Road.
