Conserving & Protecting Land
Mass Audubon actively protects over 40,000 acres in Massachusetts.
Land conservation is critically important not only to the survival of native wildlife and plants, but also for the health and wellbeing of the people who live, work, and play in Massachusetts. It's also one of the most effective, proven strategies when it comes to mitigating the increasing impacts of climate change.
We've been protecting wild places across the state for more than a century using our science-based land conservation strategy. Today, Mass Audubon is the largest private conservation landowner in the Commonwealth.
