Boston Parents Paper Selects Mass Audubon as ‘Family Favorite’ for 2020

LINCOLN, MA.—Boston Parents Paper has selected Mass Audubon a 2020 “Family Favorite” for multiple categories in the respected parenting magazine’s annual Reader's Choice awards.
The state’s largest nature conservation nonprofit was named No. 1 in the Animals and Nature Summer Camps category; placed within the Top 5 in both the Family Summer Camps and Farms categories; and was a Top 10 finisher among School Vacation Camps.
Mass Audubon operates day camps at nearly all its 19 nature centers statewide, as well as the Wildwood overnight camp in Rindge, N.H. After extensive discussions and site-specific scenario planning related to COVID-19, each of our camps has determined whether or not they will be running programs this summer.
The “Family Favorite” awards are based on votes of Boston Parents Paper readers in its annual online survey, which runs in March and April. The magazine will publish the results of this year’s survey in its August issue.
“Mass Audubon prides itself on ensuring that our campers can connect with nature, have a lot of fun, and thrive in a safe camping environment that both values young individuals and encourages community,” Director of Education Kris Scopinich said. “So we are thrilled to be honored as a ‘Family Favorite’ by the well-respected Boston Parents Paper.”
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.
