About Mass Audubon

Mass Audubon is the largest nature-based conservation organization in New England. Founded in 1896 by two women who fought for the protection of birds, Mass Audubon carries on their legacy by focusing on the greatest challenges facing the environment today: the loss of biodiversity, inequitable access to nature, and climate change. With the help of our 160,000 members and supporters, we protect wildlife, conserve and restore resilient land, advocate for impactful environmental policies, offer nationally recognized education programs for adults and children, and provide endless opportunities to experience the outdoors at our wildlife sanctuaries.

About This Position

Help Mass Audubon protect the biodiversity of the Great Marsh by volunteering to help with pepperweed removal at sites from Salisbury to Gloucester.  We are seeking volunteers who can donate a few hours several times per month from May to July to help control this invasive plant by manually pulling out plants and disposing of them properly. You may "adopt-a-site" to work on individually (or with your family – kids 6 and older welcome), or participate in one of our upcoming “group pulls.” Please let us know if you are connected to a group who would like to get involved. Training will be provided at dates and locations to be announced. 

Please wear waterproof boots or those old sneakers in the back of your closet. We'll provide the dampness and maybe some mud!
