Wildlife Habitat Management Happening Here!

Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary has received a Wildlife Habitat Management Grant through the MA Department of Fish and Game (Mass Wildlife) to increase upland habitat diversity and improve early successional habitat for plants and wildlife.

Work has begun – how will this affect your visit?
The fields and forest edges along Billings Loop will begin to change over the next few months. You may notice a number of marked trees and other plants. We will be removing invasive trees and shrubs and thinning some forest edges to increase open field, shrubland, and young forest habitats, facilitate shrub and forest understory regeneration, and to support a healthy and diverse natural landscape within our sanctuary.

We may have to temporary re-route trails as contractors and staff work in these areas. Please always check in at the front desk for updates before you head out, or Like us on Facebook to receive updates.

Want to know more?
Join us for a presentation by Mass Audubon regional scientist Gene Albanese on either Thursday, March 1 or Thursday, March 15.

Join sanctuary director Karen Stein for a walk to the fields to learn more about the work that has been done on Sunday, March 11 or Friday, March 16.
