Have you ever wondered how the Douglas Fir got its name?  Or how the tree’s namesake met his end by a wild bull in Hawaii?  Join Steve Jackson, Mount Auburn’s Plant Records & GIS Manager, for an early evening stroll through the cemetery to hear the stories of the plant hunters who often risked their lives to bring us the plants we have in Mount Auburn’s landscape.
Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
