For children ages 5 and up and accompanying caregivers. (This is not a drop-off program.)

This May Day (May 1st), families are invited to The Wayside Inn to learn about the 19th- and 20th-century May Basket tradition, listen to a read-aloud about Henry David Thoreau, and take a short, guided walk around our garden and Josephine's Pond. Supplies to make one take-home May Basket and a nature journal will be provided to child participants.

In the event of rain, we will have to cancel the walk, however, the rest of the program will proceed in a covered area on our property.

The photo above is Mrs. Grace Coolidge (wife of President Calvin Coolidge) receiving a basket of flowers and a kiss on May Day, c. 1927.
