Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary

Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary is Mass Audubon’s oldest, encompassing protected forests, fields, and wetlands. Diverse hiking trails and a red maple swamp boardwalk provide countless opportunities for exploration. Hike along the Bluff Trail for breathtaking views, and visit the Moose Hill Community Farm, a community supported agriculture program. A number of educational nature-based programs are available, exploring such topics as maple sugaring, rocks and landforms, Native American life, weather and climate, and more. Each program is designed to engage students through guided discovery, interactive discussions, and games with Moose Hill’s trained naturalists, and are customizable to your group’s needs.

Nature Centers Fun Facts

One single tree can provide the oxygen required for two human beings and over 8,000 sheets of paper. In the United States, we use enough office paper each year to build a 10-foot-high wall that’s 6,815 miles long. That’s more than the distance from New York to Tokyo!

Trees can also clean the soil and air by absorbing harmful pollutants. So what have you done for a tree lately? Nature centers provide a hands-on environment to discover facts about native plants and trees, as well as ways to preserve these natural resources.

Follow up your trip by planting a tree or proposing a conservation program for your group.
