How the Arboretum Became the Arboretum: The First 25 Years

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Emily Wheeler, Arboretum Docent

Sunday, May 5, 11:00am-12:30pm
1090 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

The Arnold Arboretum did not come into existence full-formed, but had a long adolescence before it (literally) blossomed at 50. Our first director, Charles Sargent, prepared a 50-year report in 1922, before the end of his own 54-year tenure. But, what about the first 25 years? We don't have a 25-year report, however, we do have photos and the engaging stories from that time.

Join our docent to hear those stories, as she takes you on a timeline through the walnut and oak collections, to the beeches, and back via Bussey Hill. This tour meets at the Centre Street Gate.

In case of inclement weather, contact 617.384.5209.

Free, registration requested.
