Connecting Teens with Nature

The ages between 13 and 17 are a critical time for teenagers, when they start to develop passions for causes and ideals greater than themselves. This is the time for young people to gain an environmental ethic that will last a lifetime. Mass Audubon offers teens the opportunity to contribute to these causes while building friendships around common interests.

At Our Wildlife Sanctuaries

Looking for community service hours, something fun to do on the weekends, or just want to try something new? Meet new friends, gain skills, and create shareable moments through Mass Audubon's teen programs and clubs.
