Wednesday, May 30, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm – Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan Presentation

Over the last several years, the Esplanade Association has focused its efforts heavily on the health of the park’s more than 1,700 trees. In fall 2017, EA worked in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and a project consultant (Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture) to draft a comprehensive Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan. The plan will build on the existing 2015 tree inventory to create a multi-year maintenance and planting plan, ensuring a healthy tree canopy for future generations. The Garden Club of the Back Bay contributed to the inventory of trees. The Association is delighted to present the draft of this plan for your review and comment. Please join us on Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm at Fisher College’s Alumni Hall to learn more and share your feedback. RSVP to info@esplanadeassociation.org.

Friday, June 1, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Identifying Ferns of the Arnold Arboretum

Considering its size and location New England has a relatively rich flora of ferns and fern allies (clubmosses, spikemosses, and quillworts). While it is possible to see almost all these species somewhere in the state of Massachusetts, several can be found at the Arnold Arboretum. Fern specialist Jacob Suissa will teach the anatomy, reproduction, and key identifying characters that will help you to identify the ferns and fern allies of the Arboretum and New England. Participants will begin indoors at the Arboretum’s Weld Hill Research Building with a lecture and then move outdoors to Hemlock Hill and Bussey Brook for a fern foray. Dress for indoor and outdoor learning. The class will take place Friday, June 1, from 2 – 5 (originally scheduled for June 3, so take note.) Fee $40 Arboretum member, $50 nonmember. Register at http://my.arboretum.harvard.edu or call 617-384-5277.

    Best Children's Menus In Boston
    Kids menus at restaurants tend to come in one of two varieties: child-sized portions of their regular menu items or items that are uniquely designed to cater to the wants and wishes of children. That usually means tried-and-true favorites, as many children do not want to experiment with something new.
