Landforms & Forest Ecology Field Trip
Visit one of our local sanctuaries to explore evidence do of plate tectonics or glaciers activity from the past. Investigate the life cycle of the forest and how living things respond to changes through structure and behavior. Learn about some of the research Mass Audubon is doing to understand the effects climate change has on this resource.
This field trip is available at all of our South East Sanctuaries which include Allen's Pond, North River, Oak Knoll, and Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuaries.
