Friends Members Reception to Focus on Preparing for Climate Change


The Friends of the Public Garden Members Reception will take place on Thursday, October 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Revere Hotel, 200 Stuart Street, Boston.

Preparing for Climate Change in Boston:
The Vital Role of Our Greenspaces

2012 was the warmest year on record in the U.S. by one full degree. By 2047, the coldest years will be warmer than today’s warmest. Brian Swett, Chief of Environment, Energy and Open Space for the City of Boston, will discuss what Boston is doing to prepare for climate change, how urban greenspaces are being impacted by it, and the important role they play in mitigating it.

We will also be celebrating Hill Holliday for raising the visibility of the Friends through a very generous marketing campaign this year.

Speaking program will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.  A reception will follow.

Please RSVP at 617-723-8144 or by e-mail to by October 3. The event is free for members, but space is limited. You can join the Friends or renew your membership at this event!

Thank you to the Motor Mart Garage for being the lead sponsor for this reception.
