Did someone say beautiful scenic picnic lunch?
While lunch is not provided by BCA, the deCordova’s Twisted Tree Cafe is open or attendees can bring their own lunch. We will gather for a summer picnic together by the park.

Tickets are $15 per person, and if you would like to take the bus with BCA, tickets are $30 per person. You can get your tickets directly here.

What if it rains?
We will be making the trip rain or shine! We will revisit in case of severe weather, including hurricane, tornado, earthquake, volcanic activity.

The deCordova also has the indoor museum for cover and enjoyment in case of heavier downpours.
