Reasons to Support Moose Hill

Since 1916 when Dr. George Wilton Field first loaned Mass Audubon land for a bird sanctuary, Moose Hill has been a place for native wildlife, education, and exploration. As the oldest Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuary, and protecting more than 1,900 acres, we offer diverse hiking trails through forests, fields, and wetlands. We could not accomplish all that we do without the generous support of our members, donors, volunteers, and program participants. Find out how you can help

Connecting People and Nature

At Moose Hill, we take pride in providing countless opportunities for exploration in every season, whether self-guided or as part of an engaging program. For example:

  • Birders at Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary
    Adult birding excursions both on-site and across the region, led by experienced leaders for visitors of all abilities.
  • Natural history walks to explore the trails and learn about the flora and fauna found at Moose Hill though out the year.
  • Day camp sessions for 1,100 campers of all ages focusing on nature, farming, art, science, and adventure.
  • School programs both on- and off-site for over 7,500 students, providing unique opportunities to observe and enjoy plants and animals up close.
  • Annual special events such as Halloween Prowl, Maple Sugaring Weekends, Mother’s Day Nature Walk and Breakfast, and a Native Plant Sale.
  • A thriving Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program providing organic vegetables for almost 400 families and several local food pantries.
