Hike through the meadows, forests and beaches of Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary for Mass Audubon's Hike-a-thon weekend. We're challenging you to get outside and hike 1.25 miles the last weekend in November in celebration of our 125th anniversary of protecting the nature of Massachusetts. Ditch the crowds and enjoy the mental and physical benefits of hiking outdoors as you learn about the natural world from our expert guide.
Expect to travel hard-packed and sandy trails at a leisurely pace. For more details and other ways to enrich your hiking, visit massaudubon.org/hikeathon.
Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Please arrive and check-in 10 minutes before the start of the program. This program includes sanctuary admission for the remainder of the day.
COVID Guidelines: This program will take place outdoors. Mass Audubon requires masks in indoor spaces. If you need to enter the building for any reason (i.e. using restrooms or filling a water bottle) you are required to wear a mask.
