Spend the morning helping one of our 14 participating wildlife sanctuaries get a jump on spring cleaning while you reconnect with nature. Come alone, bring your family, or invite a groups of friends to join you!

As always, we'll have a variety of projects suitable for all ages and abilities at sites across Massachusetts. 

To get a preview of what’s in store, view the 2018 photo slideshow and see how much we accomplished last year.
