Mass Audubon's Duck Derby 2021 at Allens Pond

Mass Audubon's Duck Derby at Allens Pond

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Mass Audubon's Duck Derby at Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary is a fun annual event where thousands of rubber ducks—sponsored by individuals just like you—are released on an incoming tide for an epic race from Buzzards Bay into Allens Pond.

With fierce determination, they fight their way to the finish line where the first five to cross win a Grand Prize! 

Many other lucky ducks will claim fantastic runner-up prizes, including a special honor for the "Slacker Quacker" (the last duck to finish the race). The full list of prizes will be posted online on July 15.

Because this year marks both our 18th Duck Derby at Allens Pond and Mass Audubon's 125th anniversary, we have some special treats in store!

This beloved event supports Mass Audubon ecological and outreach projects in the South East region.
