Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary
|Follow Moose Hill on Facebook|
Moose Hill is Mass Audubon’s
oldest sanctuary and one of the
largest with nearly 2,000 acres.
The 25-mile trail system brings
you through diverse habitats:
explore the red maple swamp
via the boardwalk, observe
amphibians at a vernal pool, or
watch swallows catching insects
in the meadows. Each season
brings another opportunity to
explore nature’s wonders—enjoy
a winter stroll, watch migrating
warblers, or experience the beauty
of the fall foliage. Our bird-feeding
station and butterfly garden bring
wildlife close to the nature center.
Art exhibits are shown continually throughout the year in our gallery.
The sanctuary also features Moose Hill
Community Farm, a community
supported agriculture program
that provides shareholders with
fresh, local produce throughout
the growing season.
