Take a personalized, private, and safe guided tour into the wonders of nature with your family. A Mass Audubon Naturalist will lead your group on an exploration of Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary, guiding you through hands-on investigations of plants and animals and observing the interactions and energy flow in the ecosystem.

Chose Your Program:

Busy Animals in Autumn How do animals get ready for winter? Investigate migration, hibernation, and staying active as you watch animals gather food and test their wings.

Story Rocks, Dancing Trees, and other Land Mysteries Learn to look for nature mysteries and then tell stories based on evidence found on the sanctuary. What could be changing the landscape, sometimes slowly and sometimes quicky?

Senses and SeasonsLearn the best way to use your nose, ears, fingers and eyes to explore nature any time. Learn about changing colors and falling leaves, late season flowers, how seeds travel, other changes in autumn.

Into the Woods Search the layers of the forest from the soil to the tree tops. Use binoculars to search for birds in the canopy, use magnifying glasses to explore the leaf litter, and look for tracks and signs along the trails. Learn to age a white pine tree, visit the beech and seek out witch's hats.

All programs can be customized to your group's interests; optional activities for children based on age and interest can be provided.
