Supporting the nearby Alder and Willow collections, the Meadow Road wetland (sometimes called “The Meadow”) is mostly known for its much-loved cattails and late-summer sunflowers. Join us to explore the plant species found in this urban wetland and learn about the birds, insects and other wildlife that call it home. 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. Be sure to wear boots or waterproof shoes! Meet in front of the Hunnewell Building.
