Check here for the latest news from Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries around the state.
Over the past 21 years, the Boston Nature Center has grown to be a vibrant community nature center under Julie Brandlen’s leadership. Below are some of the milestones that highlight our shared journey towards building a community of belonging.
Five months ago, Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center (BNC) in Mattapan broke ground on an ambitious project to become carbon neutral by 2022. So, it is especially fitting that on Earth Day Friday, April 22, members of the BNC community, supporters, civic leaders, and Mass Audubon staff gathered at the 67-acre wildlife sanctuary for a ribbon-cutting to officially announce it has achieved net-zero energy status.
BNC's Willow Tree Youth Leaders recently presented their impactful project to reduce single-use plastic within schools! Their two-year effort was part of the Youth Leaders for Climate Justice (YLCJ) program led by Drumlin Farm.
