During its 120-year history, the club has developed different characteristics at various times but has maintained a consistent focus. The club is committed to promoting the preservation and improvement of the (now urban) landscape through active involvement in education programs and civic projects in horticulture and conservation in the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The club contributes a small amount of funding to civic and environmental organizations who share similar goals in the Cambridge/Boston area.
