Cemeteries have often been revered by biologists as biodiversity refugia; for this reason, Mt. Auburn Cemetery is currently collaborating with Lesley University in a citizen science and education biodiversity program: the Mount Auburn Urban Ecosystem Project

This walk will be an opportunity for the Friends of the Farlow – as citizen scientists – to contribute to the documentation of the biodiversity in fungi, lichenized fungi, and bryophytes occurring on the grounds of Mt Auburn Cemetery. The checklist we develop during the walk with be submitted to the project.  Please be sure to bring hand lenses, cameras and water.
