Mass Audubon Society
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.
Founded in 1896 by two inspirational women who were committed to the protection of birds, Mass Audubon is now one of the largest and most prominent conservation organizations in New England. Today they are respected for their sound science, successful advocacy, and innovative approaches to connecting people and nature. Each year, their statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries welcomes nearly half a million visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and serves as the base for their work.
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.
