Mass Audubon's Winter Recess

Saturday, February 13 – Sunday, February 28

We're dialing up the cold-weather fun with winter vacation week programs for kids and families, in-person and virtual programs for all ages, and nature play activities you can do at your own pace. And with summer camp right around the corner, we hope you'll consider helping us remove financial barriers to camp with a donation to our Kids to Camp Fund.

→ More information is coming soon. New programs will continue to be added over the next several weeks, so check back often!

NOTE: Any photos of children not wearing masks were taken prior to March 2020. All Mass Audubon program participants are required to wear face coverings.
