Summary

You won't want to miss this beautiful early spring walk through the Arnold Arboretum! Beginning at the main entrance, we'll ramble throughout the entire preserve for about four miles.  Highlights will include taking in the spectacular views of Boston and surroundings from Peters and Bussey Hills, ascending the slopes of Hemlock Hill, and viewing the magnificent tree and and shrub specimens.  As it will be early spring - and with hopes of warmer temps - we'll be able to see the catkins and budding of the trees and shrubs, witch hazel and crocuses in bloom, and other wonders of nature.  The Arnold Arboretum is a 280+ acre treasure operated by Harvard University on land owned by the City of Boston.  It's one of the finest examples of landscape design by Frederick Law Olmsted, and it's a National Historic Landmark.  Because of the vagaries of Boston weather, please dress with the appropriate outdoors gear, wear good hiking shoes and bring a liter of water.  Our hike is just one of the monthly rambles through the scenic and ever-changing Arboretum that are being planned for throughout the year.  After our extensive walk, we will re-group and walk over to nearby Jamaica Plain Center where we'll schmooze about our afternoon escapade at a local eatery.         

We will meet at the Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston, MA 02130.  You can use that address for Google Maps and your GPS.  Parking is free along the main road (the Arborway).  It's a 10 minute walk from the Forest Hills Station of the MBTA's Orange Line.  We will meet at 1 pm on the main steps in front of the brick Adminstration/Bussey Building, which is just inside the main gate at the right.
