Teen Conservation Clubs

Teen Conservation Club at Oak Knoll Wildlife Sanctuary

Teenagers looking for a place to help build and strengthen a strong environmental ethic can get real conservation experience by participating in Teen Conservation Clubs at Mass Audubon's Ipswich River and Oak Knoll wildlife sanctuaries. 

As part of these groups, teens ages 13-16 learn about the challenges of conservation and are empowered to take part in real science and conservation work that focuses on issues they care about.

At Oak Knoll (Attleboro, MA)

Join one of Oak Knoll's Teacher-Naturalists one Sunday a month for a program exploring environmental science with activities like monitoring local amphibian populations, exploring the health of local wetlands, creating enrichment for our Nature Center’s animal collection, and investigating local conservation topics. This is a great program to meet like minded teens and explore your interests in the environment!

At Ipswich River (Topsfield, MA)

One Saturday each month during the fall, winter, and spring, Club members try their hand at projects ranging from monitoring wildlife and installing trail cameras on the wildlife sanctuary to setting up salamander cover-board arrays and pulling invasive pepperweed in salt marshes on the coast. In addition, club members spend time hiking, birding, and connecting with other nature-loving teens.
