Calendar Of Events & Programs


We are participating in the Boston Area City Nature Challenge – a fun competition with cities across the world to document (April 26 - 29th) and identify (April 30 - May 5th) the most species!

Come out and help!

From April 26 - 29, 2019 Boston City Nature Challenge needs people (i.e. you) to help us take observations (e.g. taking photos with your phone) of as many species as possible to record nature in and around Boston. All species count! This information will help create a more accurate picture of the Boston area's biodiversity, focusing within the I-495 corridor and out to Stellwagen Bank. Any observation of plants, animals, fungi, even microbes, in the greater Boston area made during these days will count for the challenge.

We are a participating site and welcome visitors to come make observations Friday, April 26 or Monday, April 29 during our regular business hours of 9:00 am-3:00 pm or on Saturday, April 27th from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. There is an invasive species management workshop during that time. Participants at the workshop will be making observations. Individuals who just want to make observations and not attend the workshop are welcome at that time. For more information about the workshop, click here.
