Birding in Peace

Before our gates open to the general public, birding expert Rob Jett leads these peaceful Sunday morning walking tours to discover the many birds that call Green-Wood home. Copies of our new Bird Checklist will be available to all tour participants. Comfortable footwear is recommended.

Spring Family Scavenger Hunt

Grab your smartphone and see Green-Wood in a whole new way! We are thrilled to launch the “Agents of Discovery” app, which we’ve developed in partnership with the US Forest Service. While we’re pretty sure our founders could not have quite wrapped their heads around this, we know they’d love the way it encourages users to discover Green-Wood’s trees, hills, and glacial ponds. Augmented reality? Check. Point scoring? Check. Kids outdoors discovering nature? Check. Win-win for everyone. Open to families with children of all ages. Ticket price covers the entire family!

Motherless Mothers

“When a mother dies,” author Hope Edelman writes, “a daughter’s mourning never completely ends.” In what ways can we honor our mothers who have passed away while raising our own children? How can we uncover the hidden wisdom that can be found in mourning and the celebration of life? Amy Cunningham, death educator and funeral director, will lead this enlightening conversation for motherless mothers with children of any age, about child rearing, grieving, and rituals for memorializing.
