Bird-a-thon 2015

Sticking to Central Mass Important Bird Areas, Broad Meadow Brook’s small but powerful Bird-a-thon team found 135 species. Adding observations from a team member’s backyard at the Cape brought us to 143. Not too shabby for a team aiming to bird environmentally!


With generous support from Hanover Insurance, Commerce Bank, and Price Chopper’s Golub Foundation, Broad Meadow Brook is bringing Neighborhood Nature back into the city this summer. From insect collecting to nature crafts, there’s something fun going on in a park near you!
