Members Week 2013
Beginning the week of October 21st the Friends of Mount Auburn is offering special benefits in thanks for the generous support and friendship of our members. Stop in to the Visitors Center October 21-27 to receive your gift of a Friends of Mount Auburn Cemetery backpack!
Join President Dave Barnett for a special Fall Foliage Walking Tour on Thursday, October 24th at 4PM. We will visit some of Dave’s favorite places and trees in the cemetery. Refreshments will bring the walk to a warm conclusion. All new members who joined in the past year are welcome.
Join Bob Stymeist for an Evening Owl Walk on Tuesday, October 29th at 5pM. This time of year is best to search for migrating Northern Saw-whet Owls. We will also have a good chance of seeing or at least hearing a Great Horned or a Screech Owl. Dress warmly and bring a flashlight!
Take advantage of complimentary admission to the New England Wild Flower Society’s unique living museum Garden in the Woods from October 25-31 2013.
Set among 45 acres, Garden in the Woods is a living museum which contains 1,500 kinds of native New England plants, including more than 300 rare and endangered species, displayed in naturalistic settings. For families looking to teach their children about the natural world, for adults who can’t decide between a stroll in the garden and a walk in the woods, and for anyone curious about the diversity of the region’s wild flowers and woody plants, New England Wild Flower Society’s Garden in the Woods offers a unique experience in a tranquil and beautiful setting.
You must show your Friends membership card to take advantage of these special offers.
