This summer, July 5–August 2, the Arboretum will hold a summer session for students from several Boston Public Schools: Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School, Boston Green Academy, Dearborn STEM Academy, and Mildred Avenue K8 School. Students will participate in hands-on outdoor activities, projects, and labs, and learn from scientists, gardeners, and others who study and care for nature. Applications are due by Friday, June 16.
