We will meet in Boylston then head to a Framingham restaurant for a brunch. With bellies full, we then set off to the infamous Garden!

Garden in the Woods is the Society’s botanic garden, showcasing an unrivaled collection of both rare and common native plants in a dramatic woodland setting. The 45-acre property takes you from glacier-carved ridges into steep-sided valleys with a pond, a bog, and a meandering stream!
