Summers are Free for Active-Duty Military Families

Mass Audubon is proud to offer free admission to active-duty U.S. military personnel and their families from Memorial Day to Labor Day through the Blue Star Museums program.

All Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries, including Allens Pond all others in the Southcoast area, welcome our country‚Äôs service men and women and their families to explore nature and observe wildlife this summer.

The Blue Star Museums program 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.
