Become a Mass Audubon Member

If you love nature and want to protect it, join our community of 160,000 members. Mass Audubon members value preserving land and protecting wildlife. They crave time outdoors, whether they’re hiking, gardening, or birdwatching. They support sustainable brands and reduce their carbon footprint whenever possible. And they love to learn and teach others about the beauty and wonders of nature. 

Thanks to our members, who provide essential support and inspire us to do more every day, we’re tackling the greatest challenges facing the environment: the loss of biodiversity, inequitable access to nature, and climate change.
