African American Legacies
The Boston area was buried under glacial ice for thousands of years, and Mount Auburn’s unique landscape preserves wonderful remnants of this icy past. Our walk led by docent and historian Robin Hazard Ray will explore dramatic glacial landforms—kames, kettle ponds, and an esker—that have been lost to development and mining elsewhere in our area.
