Leadership Friends: Levels of Participation

LF group walking up a hill trail

We celebrate your support by offering exclusive events and natural history programs where you can connect with each other and with the wildlife and wild lands you protect. Choose from a range of Leadership Friends levels, each including many great benefits. 

You can also spread out your gift over the course of a year and have your membership automatically renewed through our Leadership Friends Monthly Sustainer program.

And as a Leadership Friend, you can choose to have your annual contribution support Mass Audubon's general operations or direct it towards the support of specific sanctuaries, departments, or programs.
