Program areas at INC

Olmsted tree society - contributions to establish the olmsted tree society in 2013 provided close to $1 million to begin the important work of assessing the condition of trees in the emerald necklace and planning to ensure their healthy future. Guided by recommendations in emerald necklace tree conditions assessment and management plan, the initiative intends to preserve heritage trees in these historic parks, some of which are more than 100 years old. In addition, the project will protect healthy trees with selective pruning and soil enhancement and plant new trees where needed in the back bay fens, riverway, olmsted park, franklin park, around jamaica pond and along the parkways of the necklace. The effort will also help educate the public about the critical relationship between trees and a healthy urban environment.

To mark its 20th anniversary in 2018, the conservancy undertook three major initiatives to elevate its visibility and visitor experience: engage new visitors by bringing to boston's emerald necklace parks an exhibition of "climate responsive" art by renowned japanese artist fujiko nakaya called fog x flo: fujiko nakaya on the emerald necklace; develop and pilot new way-finding approaches to help park users orient their way to and through the necklace from surrounding neighborhoods during the exhibit; and research, design, and install new interpretive displays in the emerald necklace shattuck visitor center at 125 the fenway. In addition numerous programs at the shattuck visitor center in the back bay fens, including docent-led park tours, and special tours of the fog x flo presentations, information and programs.
