At Broad Meadow Brook, there is a lot we can do while working remotely. But we can't host field trips, public programs, or special events—and donations to offset these losses are urgently needed.
Wheelabrator Millbury sponsors free sanctuary admission for Millbury residents four times a year. Join us once each season and explore all that Broad Meadow Brook has to offer—for free! Next event is July 11, 2020.
The Blackstone River Coalition (BRC) is in need of volunteer citizen science water quality monitors (WQM) to collect data at sites in the headwaters region of the watershed. No prior experience needed—we'll train you! Seeking volunteers for 2020 testing dates.
Registration is now open for Broad Meadow Brook Nature Day Camp in Worcester! We’re looking forward to sunshine, summertime, and days filled with adventure in the great outdoors.

The new Dr. Deirdre Loughlin Fund will provide essential support that allows us to connect Broad Meadow Brook with students attending Worcester Public Schools.
Since it wasn't possible to host our annual Sheep & Wool Festival this year due to COVID-19, we wanted to bring the festival experience to you—virtually! Get to know the sanctuary's resident sheep, learn all about shearing, connect with our wonderful vendors, and find out how you can help support the sanctuary's flock.
We are excited to announce that the Dianne Engelhardt Fund has reached its initial goal! It's now an endowed fund of Mass Audubon restricted to supporting children’s educational programs and initiatives at Wachusett Meadow.
