All Farm Day proceeds help Mass Audubon South Shore Sanctuaries continue to protect and steward over 2,000 acres of land on the South Shore as well as provide quality educational programming in local schools, at our summer camp, and through year-round activities for adults, children, and families. This annual event celebrates Mass Audubon’s 1984 acquisition of this amazing property, saving it from development and protecting over 500 acres of important habitat.
