Summers are Free for Military Families at Wildlife Sanctuaries

Blue Star Museums Logo

Mass Audubon is proud to offer free admission to active-duty U.S. military personnel and their families from Armed Forces Day (May 18) to Labor Day (September 2) through the Blue Star Museums program.

All Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries from the Berkshires to the Cape welcome our country’s service men and women to explore nature and observe wildlife this summer.

The Blue Star Museums program is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts, the Department of Defense, and Blue Star Families. Each summer it provides military families free access to over 2,000 museums, wildlife sanctuaries, and parks across the country in recognition of their service.

How It Works

  • All active-duty personnel (including National Guard and Reserve) and their families are eligible for free admission.
  • Present a valid military ID card to sanctuary staff.
  • Offer applies to a maximum of five people per ID card.
  • Program is available from May 18, 2019, through September 2, 2019.
