Habitat Education Center & Wildlife Sanctuary

Looking across Turtle Pond at Habitat Education Center
Turtle Pond

Gentle trails wind through deciduous and evergreen forests, across meadows, and around ponds and vernal pools at Habitat, located just seven miles from downtown Boston. A long-standing center for environmental education, Habitat offers year-round programs for all ages. Examples of sustainability—including goats that help control invasive plants and a community garden with plots for rent—make this a great spot to learn about green practices while you explore. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.

 Organized groups require advance reservations. Please contact us to schedule your visit. ←
