Broad Meadow Brook in Worcester is the largest urban wildlife sanctuary in New England, with more than 400 acres cooperatively managed or owned by Mass Audubon. Interpretive signs will guide you along well-marked trails through woods, fields, streams, and marsh. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
Celebrate butterflies with a day of educational fun at the sanctuary, where these amazing insects fly free in their natural habitats! Enjoy nature walks, live caterpillar exhibits, children's activities, and much more.
Every year, the team at the Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary welcomes interns to assist with a variety of projects across the sanctuary.
The sanctuary's new ecological project seeks to improve water quality, flood storage capacity, and native wildlife habitat value while reducing flood risk in adjacent residential neighborhoods.
