LINCOLN, MA—Mass Audubon is thanking the men and women who’ve served their country in the military this Veterans Day, November 11, by offering them and their families free admission to its wildlife sanctuaries across the Commonwealth.

The largest nature conservation organization in the state, Mass Audubon will be inviting vets and family members this Friday to discover its network of sanctuaries and nature centers, ranging from the beaches and saltmarshes of the Cape & Islands to the mountains, woodlands, and rivers of the Berkshires.

According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, there are almost 370,000 veterans living in the Bay State, and Mass Audubon is grateful that they and their spouses, partners, and children are among the more than half-million visitors who enjoy Mass Audubon sanctuaries each year.


Mass Audubon is the largest nature-based conservation organization in New England. Founded in 1896 by two women who fought for the protection of birds, Mass Audubon carries on their legacy by focusing on the greatest challenges facing the environment today: the loss of biodiversity, inequitable access to nature, and climate change. With the help of our 140,000 members and supporters, we protect wildlife, conserve and restore resilient land, advocate for impactful environmental policies, offer nationally recognized education programs for adults and children, and provide endless opportunities to experience the outdoors at our wildlife sanctuaries.
