The Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum is a 25-acre property that lies within the much larger Blue Hills and Neponset River ecosystem. The arboretum’s plant collection includes a very broad range of both native and non-native species. This allows a unique opportunity to study the impacts of a changing climate on a variety of species. In this video, Arboretum Director Debbie Merriam highlights some of the observations of the cascading impacts of a changing climate on plant species and its management strategy to adapt to these changes.

The video is part of a lecture series sponsored by the Blue Hills Climate Action Network.  See other videos as part of the ‘Climate Change in the Blue Hills‘ series.
