Mass Audubon’s Berkshire wildlife sanctuaries will partner with a pair of community health centers to help share with their patients the healthful benefits of nature and the outdoors. The wildlife sanctuaries will work with East Mountain Medical and MACONY Pediatrics, both located in Great Barrington, to support physical and mental health through connection with the natural world and guided activities that promote well-being, stress reduction, exercise, and a sense of community.
