Adult Group Programs at Blue Hills

Operated in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Blue Hills Trailside Museum is the interpretive center for the state-owned Blue Hills Reservation.

The sanctuary features a natural history museum and outdoor exhibits of native wildlife. The animals on display—including a River Otter and Red Foxes—have been rescued and would not survive in the wild.

Mass Audubon teacher naturalists lead illustrated talks and guided nature walks for adult groups that will immerse your audience in the natural world of Massachusetts. Programs can come to you, bringing the experience right to your group or at a Metro South wildlife sanctuary.
