Mass Audubon protects 38,000 acres of land throughout Massachusetts, saving birds and other wildlife, and making nature accessible to all. As Massachusetts’ largest nature conservation nonprofit, we welcome more than a half million visitors a year to our wildlife sanctuaries and 20 nature centers. From inspiring hilltop views to breathtaking coastal landscapes, serene woods, and working farms, we believe in protecting our state’s natural treasures for wildlife and for all people—a vision shared in 1896 by our founders, two extraordinary Boston women.

Today, Mass Audubon is a nationally recognized environmental education leader, offering thousands of camp, school, and adult programs that get over 225,000 kids and adults outdoors every year. With more than 125,000 members and supporters, we advocate on Beacon Hill and beyond, and conduct conservation research to preserve the natural heritage of our beautiful state for today’s and future generations. We welcome you to explore a nearby sanctuary, find inspiration, and get involved. Learn how at massaudubon.org.

  • Quick stop, expected more. No trail to walk, contained to fenced area. Beautiful views for birdwatching on the 2nd floor. Small marine life tank as you enter in right.
  • They have the only known instance of the elusive Northern Hemisphere penguins, totally worth a trip just to see them! 😉🐧🐧🐧🐧
  • The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. There is a spotting scope setup indoors at the window allowing visitors to view the marsh and ocean beyond.
  • Bird feeders, a beautiful view, great gift shop, and knowledgeable staff. Can't beat that combo.
  • Great facility with local marine touch tank! Look at their free and paid programs too, amazing and knowledgeable staff.
