Instagram Contest

Trees. They produce oxygen, clean our air of pollutants, provide us shade on a hot day, and mesmerize us with their changing colors and winding branches. It’s hard to express how grateful we are to have over 5,500 trees in Mount Auburn Cemetery.

To celebrate Arbor Day, National Public Gardens Day, and the many trees that shape our community, we are announcing an Instagram Giveaway in partnership with Sofra Bakery & Cafe!

To enter to win a $25 gift card to Sofra Bakery and Café as well as a Sofra canvas tote bag, Express your love of trees on Instagram and post a selfie with a tree at Mount Auburn Cemetery with the hashtag #MeAndATree. Don’t forget to follow and tag @MountAuburnCemetery’s Instagram account in your post! https://www.instagram.com/mountauburncemetery/

The winner of the contest will be announced on National Public Gardens Day on May 11th!
