Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary
Hundreds of acres of grasslands, woodlands, and wetlands await you at Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary. For birders of all experience levels, there are observation blinds overlooking a shallow wetland that attracts herons, egrets, and shorebirds, as well as muskrats and mink. In late September, the sanctuary is buzzing with activity during the annual Daniel Webster Farm Day, which features hayrides, games, crafts, food, live music, and other attractions. We offer school and group programs, summer camp, and travel programs at North River Wildlife Sanctuary.
Summers are Free for Military Families at Wildlife Sanctuaries
From the first day of summer through Labor Day, all active military members and their families get free admission to our wildlife sanctuaries as part of the Blue Star Museums program which is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts, the Department of Defense, and Blue Star Families.
Each summer it provides military families free access to over 2,000 museums, wildlife sanctuaries, and parks across the country in recognition of their service.
All active-duty personnel (including National Guard and Reserve) and their families, up to five people, are eligible upon the presentation of a valid military ID card.
Mass Audubon works to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Together with more than 100,000 members, they care for 35,000 acres of conservation land, provide school, camp, and other educational programs for 225,000 children and adults annually, and advocate for sound environmental policies at local, state, and federal levels.
