Field Trip - Mount Auburn Cemetery



The event was held on Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 9:30 AM to 9:30 AM.

Mount Auburn Cemetery is one of Boston’s most beautiful green spaces.

Its collection of over 5,500 trees includes nearly 700 species and varieties. Thousands of very well-kept shrubs and herbaceous plants weave through the cemetery's hills, ponds, woodlands, and clearings. The cemetery contains more than 10 miles (17 km) of roads and many paths.  (maps may be purchased at the visitor’s center for $1.)

Landscaping styles range from Victorian-era plantings to contemporary gardens, from natural woodlands to formal ornamental gardens, and from sweeping vistas through majestic trees to small enclosed spaces. The area  is also a favorite location for bird-watchers; over 220 species of birds have been observed at the cemetery since 1958.  There are also three notable buildings on its grounds. The 62-foot Washington Tower, built in 1852–54 provides excellent views of the Boston skyline.  Bigelow Chapel was built in the 1840s, rebuilt in the 1850s, and renovated in 1899; and the Story Chapel and Administration Building were built in the 1890s.

Details such as meeting place and time, rules for the cemetery and the plan for the day will be sent to the signed up group.
