At Mass Audubon Blue Hills Trailside Museum 

1904 Canton Ave, Milton, MA
Thursday, August 11  9:00 am-4:00 pm

Trailside Museum, the interpretive center for the Blue Hills Reservation, is home to a wide array of wildlife   (including foxes, turtles, hawks, owls, deer, snakes, and river otter), who live at the sanctuary because they were rescued and rehabilitated and can no longer survive in the wild on their own. Visitors to Blue Hills Trailside Museum have the opportunity to view this wildlife up close. After observing the wildlife and exploring the museum, visitors can check out the nearby trails in Blue Hills Reservation.
