Take a Stroll, Learn About Trees

July 9, 2012

This Wednesday, July 11 the Boston Urban Forest Council is excited to present the Summer Tree Stroll, a special botanical tour of the Boston Common and the Public Garden and the third in a seasonal series. As the hot sun falls and the humidity lifts, the evenings become perfect for a liesurely stroll through these delightful parks.

 Join us to learn more about the diverse selection of trees that reside in Boston’s public spaces. Discover how a Californian Redwood thrives in an East Coast environment, or how to distinguish an Oak from an Elm. Whether you’re an out-of-towner or a Boston resident of 20 years, we can guarantee that you will learn something new.

We will meet at the Boston Common’s Brewer Fountain at 6:30pm and the tour will continue until 8:00pm. If you would like to register for this event, please call 617-542-7696 or email info@bostonnatural.org. The Summer Tree Stroll is free and open to everyone!

The Friends of the Public Garden and the Boston Parks & Recreation Department are partnered in sponsorship of this event.

    Darn!! I wish I knew about this sooner, I’m only a short bit away from Boston. That photo is gorgeous, is it part of the area you guys toured in?

      That picture was taken by the Swan Pond in the Public Garden. During the tree stroll, we made sure to cover the Public Garden as well as the Boston Common. The Public Garden is especially wonderful because we feature many different kinds of trees there. Keep a lookout for future strolls with us!
