Connecting Teens & Nature

The ages between 13 and 17 are a critical time for teenagers. In junior high and high school, adolescents 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’s programs offers the opportunity to contribute to these causes and feel as though they are making a difference all the while building friendships around common interests.
