The Museum of American Bird Art (MABA) at Mass Audubon is a family-friendly, professional art museum set on a 121-acre wildlife sanctuary (with 2 miles of trails) located 15 miles south of Boston. As part of New England’s largest conservation organization, MABA's mission is to connect people and nature through art. Our exhibitions feature works by internationally recognized artists inspired by nature, and we offer a wide variety of programs and classes for all ages.

This innovative, grant-funded project will enable MABA to engage young learners in a multisensory, hands-on, art and design project. The Nest will be a welcoming community space where students and other visitors can create and discuss collaboration with a focus on science, the environment, and art.
