You can keep track of your sanctuary explorations—and win prizes—by collecting stamps in your Passport to Nature, available at any one of 21 participating sanctuaries across the state.

How to Participate

  • Pick up a passport at the admissions desk of a participating sanctuary (see below for list), or contact Member Services at 781-259-9500 or via email. 
  • Passport to Nature
    Visit these sanctuaries and get your Passport stamped. Look for the wooden box containing the stamp, and enter the secret code found in your passport.
  • Collect your prizes. Visit 10 sanctuaries and win a stainless steel water bottle. Visit 21 and get a Mass Audubon flashlight. 

If you have any trouble—a lost passport or a stamp that’s hard to find—contact us at 781-259-9500 or email us

Each participating sanctuary also offers a beautiful enameled pin featuring their unique animal, for $5 ($4.50 for Mass Audubon members).
