Description: Our programs meet the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering curriculum standards. Each garden visit is one hour long and is accompanied by pre- and post- classroom activities. Programs are led by committed teacher-naturalists who guide students in hands-on field investigations of plant life, diverse habitats, and the effects of weather and climate on plants at Garden in Woods.


Our site covers 45 acres threaded with miles of paths that meander through gardens, woods, wetlands, brooks, a pond, and glacier-sculpted ridges. Because of this diversity of topography and habitat, students have the opportunity to observe an unusual variety of plants and wildlife.
