Mass Audubon's Climate Action Plan calls for urgent action to guide Massachusetts towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Protecting land is one of the most tangible and powerful solutions to help us do so while fighting climate change.

This is why Mass Audubon launched The Future is in Our Lands campaign to raise $4 million to protect 4,000 acres of undeveloped land. We're committed to bold climate action, and we need your support in our collective climate fight.

Protected land:

  • Absorbs rampant carbon dioxide emissions in forests and marshes
  • Buffers extreme rain events by storing flood waters
  • Boosts nature’s resilience to climate change impacts
  • Provides clean air, clean water, and other benefits to human health

Your help allows us to conserve our land, fight climate change, and protect the people and wildlife we love.
