Meeting Cancelled: February 10, 7-9pm

Japanese Gardens and Bonsai

Mark Cyr a leading designer of Japanese gardens in the United States, will discuss how the use of water, stones and plants to emulate gardens found in Japan, can provide a tranquil garden setting.

Mark Cyr, owner of Eastern Reflections landscaping, will give an illustrated lecture on his experiences designing Japanese style gardens in the Boston area for the past twenty-five years. Currently Mark and his family live in and serve as caretakers for the Edwin Reischauer House in Belmont, Massachusetts. Professor Reischauer served as the United States Ambassador to Japan during the administration of John F. Kennedy.

Cyr grew up in Cambridge and attended the University of Michigan, where he studied forestry and natural resources. While serving in Japan in the U.S. Marine Corps, he became enthralled with Japanese gardening. That enthusiasm led to his founding Eastern Reflections, now in its 25th year.
