Woodward Discovery Days - Full Series


Join us the last Saturday of every month at Mass Audubon's Oak Knoll Wildlife Sanctuary for Woodward Discovery Days.

The Ottmar Nature Center will be open to all ages.

There will be encounters with several of our resident animal ambassadors including Carter the garter snake, Boxy the box turtle, and Spots the spotted salamander.

We'll have sensory-rich biofacts for patrons to handle and interact with and activities that can be brought along on our trails.

This event is free to the public and open to everyone; registration is encouraged but not required!

This is a come-and-go-as-you-wish event, stay as little or as long as you'd like.

Mass Audubon staff and educators will be on site to provide an opportunity to learn more about the local wildlife, sanctuary history, and answer any of your nature questions.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Attleboro Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
