This is Garden in the Woods with many species of wild flowers and the site of many school trips and library passes. This is a must place especially for Framingham residents.

This is a nice place for light hikes and observing flowers, birds and other wild life. The Society sells a nice selection of native plants and flowers at modest prices. The employees are friendly and helpful.
