Mother’s Day Walk at Mason Farm. If your mom loves the great outdoors and gardening she’ll love this walk through the Mason Farm Biological Reserve’s “old farm trail,” which travels through some 260 years of cultural and natural history. Naturalist Ed Harrison will lead the walk and point out wildflowers as well as discuss how the Garden’s intense management of both field and forest benefits local biological diversity conservation. The walk will be about 2.5 miles in length, and includes a short off-trail foray into the old-growth Shagbark Hickory forest. Wear sturdy hiking footwear and bring a walking stick, insect repellent, and water.
