Broad Meadow Brook in Worcester is the largest urban wildlife sanctuary in New England, with over 400 acres cooperatively managed or owned by Mass Audubon. Interpretive signs will guide you along well-marked trails through woods, fields, streams, and marsh. The center also serves as a visitor information site for the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.
Celebrate butterflies with a day of educational fun for the whole family. Enjoy nature walks, workshops, live music, face painting, food, live caterpillar exhibits, a butterfly-friendly plant sale, and more!
Play is the natural work of children. Our Discovering Nature program allows children to spend time outdoors learning, explore the wonders of nature, build friendships, and develop a deeper sense of place. Enrolling now for Session 1 (starts September 17)!
Broad Meadow Brook is excited to bring the great outdoors back into the city this summer. From canoeing to insect collecting to nature crafts, there's something fun going on in a park near you. And thanks to our sponsors, it's all free!
