SPRING
Spring BingoThe first few flowers begin blooming in March, even when there is still snow on the ground. As the days grow longer and warmer, more plants emerge and animals become more active. By the end of June, Mount Auburn is bursting with color and activity.

SUMMER
SummerBingoCover-webFrom late June through early September, you will find bright blooms, leafy trees, and emerald grass at Mount Auburn. Our three ponds are bustling with birds, fish, turtles, frogs, and insects. Many animals are most active in the early morning and again in the evening – the coolest times of day.

FALL

WINTER

spots of color – and food for year-round bird residents.

    My husband and I want to visit, do you offer guides or tours? Perhaps some that suggest what route to take to see certain things and is there a map that shows where certain graves are located?
    I looked on your webpage but was unable to find anything, except for children.
    Thank you so much,
    Pat
