Summers are Free for Active-Duty Military Families at Moose Hill

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 Moose Hill, welcome our country’s service men and women and their families to explore nature and observe wildlife this summer. 

This year, Moose Hill is celebrating 100 years as Mass Audubon’s first wildlife sanctuary. Take a hike through the forests, search for butterflies and dragonflies in the fields, and relax on the rocks at the bluff overlook as you take in a spectacular view.

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.
