Safety Guidelines During COVID-19

We’re thrilled to see life getting back to a new normal. To ensure the safety of our staff and visitors, please follow these guidelines when visiting a wildlife sanctuary as of May 29, 2021.

General Visitation & Volunteer Activities

Masks are optional outdoors at our wildlife sanctuaries for general visitation and volunteer activities, but masks are still required for all indoor locations (restrooms, exhibit areas, nature centers, etc.).

We recommend having a mask on hand to be prepared.

Sanctuary Programs

If you are visiting a sanctuary for a program, please check your confirmation email for program-specific guidelines.

Nature Preschools

Mass Audubon’s Nature Preschools will continue to require masks for staff and children for the remainder of the school year.

Summer Camp

The health and welfare of our campers and staff remains our highest priority. Mass Audubon is committed to the continuation of wearing masks for all staff and campers under all conditions (indoors and outside, regardless of vaccination status), maintaining physical distancing, small group sizes, enhanced sanitizing protocols, and all other recommended health and safety guidelines. Mask breaks will be included throughout the day along with mask-optional games and activities that allow for adequate distancing. Read more >
