Interesting hikes, natural history topics to explore, hands-on projects, and real wildlife data-collection opportunities will be based on your input and interests in this exciting club for teens. This is your chance to get involved behind the scenes with Mass Audubon's science and conservation work. The club meets one or two Saturdays a month in a spring/summer session and fall/winter session. We also take one field trip each session to connect with other local organizations, learn more about environmental issues in our communities, and find out how you can make a difference.
Past projects have included salamander monitoring, birding and bird conservation, pulling invasive plants, habitat restoration, wildlife tracking with trail cameras, water quality monitoring by canoe, and much more. You will also meet other local teens who are passionate about nature, science, and taking care of our world.
