School & Group Programs at Broadmoor

At Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary, we offer a multitude of fun and educational nature-based programs. These include school and homeschool programs developed to align with Massachusetts’ education frameworks, as well as programs for groups such as Scouts, birthdays, and afterschool groups. Broadmoor’s 854 acres along the Charles River in Natick and Sherborn covers a diversity of landscapes including fields, forests, and wetlands. The Saltonstall Nature Center, a converted 1911 barn, is an example of green technology at its best: it produces as much energy as the center needs.
