Our Work

Massachusetts faces significant challenges—including the rapid loss of wildlife habitat, inequitable access to nature, and the threat of climate change—that deeply affect the health and well-being of our environment and our communities. 

And yet, as we emerge from a global pandemic during which more people than ever found sanctuary in nature, signs of hope and optimism abound.

We are determined to meet these challenges and capitalize on people's emergent connection to nature with transformational actions that will ensure future generations have the chance to "go wild."
