Description:Join us for an afternoon of festivities in the Cherry Collection (Prunus spp.) near Forest Hills Road and the Bradley Rosaceous Collection.
Explore a diverse and growing collection of flowering cherries that includes plants collected early in plant explorer Ernest Henry Wilson's career, rare native species, and many species not typically found in the nursery trade.
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.
