Our department serves as a leader in advocating for strong conservation laws and programs, and public participation is the key to accomplishing Mass Audubon's objectives at the State House. The Advocacy department has offices at Broad Meadow Brook in Worcester, where our Shaping the Future of Your Community program is based, and at Mass Audubon’s headquarters in Lincoln, where we focus on sustainable development and other statewide policy issues.
