Want to see the Duck Derby in action? It's quite impressive to see approximately 7000 rubber ducks race on the incoming tide.

Meet at the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary Field Station for a prompt departure to the race site. The walk is guided, as we cross private property and you must be registered and paid to walk with us and view the race.

A $20Registration fee includes a $10 donation to the sanctuary and a $10 duck to be named upon arrival. No-shows will forfeit their duck entry.

The walk is over rugged terrain and approximately 1-1/2 miles each way.

Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, sunscreen and insect repellent.

Event will be held in rain or shine weather unless extreme events occur, in which particpants will be notified via email. All fees are non-refundable and directly benefit the Mass Audubon Duck Derby fundraiser at Allens Pond, that promote climate resilient habitats, strengthen our ecological management programs and provide accessible access to nature for all!

We look forward to seeing you at the 19th Annual Duck Derby.
