Brown Bag Lunch Series: Wildlife Management at Mount Auburn, Past and Present

March 27, 2014 @ 1:00 am
March 27, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
Mount Auburn Cemetery
580 Mount Auburn Street,
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

Did you know that as early as 1870 the trustees of Mount Auburn were discussing which trees were best for attracting birds? Curator of Historical Collections Meg L. Winslow will open the program with highlights from the archives including the early efforts of Mount Auburn’s staff to create a “bird sanctuary.” Horticultural Curator Dennis Collins will bring us to the present with examples of current planting projects and partnerships, and how Mount Auburn is helping to build wildlife habitat in this urban oasis.

This program is part of our Brown Bag Lunch Series: An Urban Wildlife Oasis. With its lushly-planted 175 acres, Mount Auburn provides the perfect habitat for many species of urban wildlife. Join us for this free series of lunch-time talks to learn about the year-round and seasonal wildlife species you can find in the Cemetery and what we are doing to protect this important habitat and encourage biodiversity. All talks will take place in Story Chapel. Bring your lunch for these hour-long presentations; coffee and tea will be provided.


Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
