School & Group Programs at South Shore Sanctuaries

Mass Audubon’s South Shore Sanctuaries (Daniel Webster and North River in Marshfield, North Hill Marsh in Duxbury) each offer unique learning opportunities.  Whether at our sanctuaries or at your site, we offer fun and educational nature-based programs year round for students from preschool to young adult.

Our location on the South Shore presents opportunities to learn about beach ecology in addition to fields, forests, and wetlands. An easily accessible trail system at each site combined with leadership by our trained naturalists makes each outing an adventure.
