Adult Group Programs at Wachusett Meadow

Group of teachers under a glacial boulder

Your group can explore local ecology with Wachusett Meadow staff year-round!

We offer a variety of fun and educational nature-based programs for adult groups such as garden clubs, libraries, senior centers, church groups, and social or educational clubs.

The sanctuary’s widely diverse habitat, wildlife, and extensive trail system provide a wonderful setting with many program options. In addition to guided hikes, we also offer guided or unguided canoeing and snowshoeing.

Programs can be tailored to fit a specific interest or setting, and can take place at the sanctuary or offsite.
