Come join us at the Cornell Club’s third annual spring walk in Garden in the Woods in Framingham. We’re hoping for a great show of flowers at this time of year. Volunteer guides from the Garden will lead us along the trails and tell us about what we’re seeing.
Founded in 1900 as the Society for the Protection of Native Plants, the New England Wild Flower Society is the nation’s oldest plant conservation organization and a recognized leader in native plant conservation, horticulture, and education. The Society’s headquarters are located at Garden in the Woods, a renowned native plant botanic garden that attracts visitors from all over the world.
Set among 45 acres in Framingham, MA, Garden in the Woods is an amazing living museum named by Yankee Magazine as the best native plant botanical garden in New England. It displays a wide variety of common and rare native plants with over two miles of inviting paths leading through natural settings including a towering canopy of trees, ponds, a wooded bog, numerous springs, and an ever-flowing brook.
