Boston Flower & Garden Show

The Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s flower show in Boston presents Romance in the Garden as the 2014 inspiration with sumptuous garden, eye-popping displays, and stimulating programming. Whether found in the fairytale elegance of a royal garden or the sleek and sexy site of a modern meet-up, scenes of love and passion will be in bloom! Leader: Bob Kuchta. Includes transportation from Connecticut and entry into the show. Members $85/ Nonmembers $95.
Butterflies in the Berkshires
Thur., March 20 8AM-5PM
Travel to the foothills of the Berkshires in Deerfield, Massachusetts, to visit the 8,000 square foot glass conservatory filled with 4,000 butterflies fluttering free about their tropical, peaceful environment. Revel in a warm morning stroll through a tropical environment where the sound of a waterfall and the thousands of butterflies create a tranquil and serene atmosphere. The group will stop for a short, winter hike at a local park on the way home. Leader: Priscilla Wood. Members $85/Nonmembers $95.
Birding the North Fork
Wed., March 26 7AM-6PM
The North Fork of Long Island is not short on places to observe winter birds. With so many bodies of water—Long Island Sound, The Peconic Bay System, the numerous creeks and backwaters—the trouble can be deciding where to go! From Orient Point to Riverhead, almost any side road can offer opportunities. There are several public beaches, as well as Orient State Park, that have easy drive-up access to views of the water. Enjoy the area while summer visitors are gone and feathered guests thriving. Leader: Andy Griswold. Members $85/Nonmembers $95.
