Adding new plants to the collections at Mount Auburn which flower in late spring or summer is not just about adding color to the landscape. This initiative is also a response to climate change and the general trend of plants flowering earlier and earlier each year. Because so much biological activity is centered around the time when plants are flowering, the life cycles of insects, and subsequently, the health of other wildlife species such as birds, are a concern. Come on this walk with Dennis Collins, Horticultural Curator, and learn about this recent addition to Mount Auburn’s list of horticultural initiatives for the next five years.

 

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