Vacation Week Fun At Stony Brook

Staying home for vacation weeks Tuesday, February 21st-Friday, February 24th or Tuesday, April 18th-Friday, April 21st with your 5 to 12-year-old? Looking for an enrichment program for your homeschooler?

Sign up for a day or all four days of Stony Brook’s vacation week programs (9am-3:30pm) as each day has a different theme. Your child could explore chemistry and create an edible science project. Or solve a “track mystery” with their new-found knowledge of track patterns.  The fun and adventure are limitless.

If your child enjoys exploring the natural world, using their imagination, creating crafts and participating in ooey-gooey fun these vacation week classes are for them. Stony Brook knows how to make learning fun! Call the sanctuary at (508) 528-3140 to register or sign up online.

#OptOutside at Stony Brook

Leave the long lines, crowds, and hunting for a parking spot to others on this Black Friday and join REI and Mass Audubon for our OptOutside campaign, a “Green Friday” of discovery outdoors.

Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary is one of many Mass Audubon locations that will be hosting or setting up self-guided activities this Friday, November 25, 2016.


Education Coordinator Marla Cohen has created a scavenger hunt to add more challenge to your walk along our beautifully groomed, half-mile Pond Loop trail. Look for the scavenger cards and crayon supplies on the porch of the sanctuary building. For those both young and old, Marla has left a trail of “leaves” camouflaged along the path filled with fun activities on your self-guided walk.

Come to Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary this Friday, enjoy your walk with friends and family and share your photos with us by posting to #OptOutside #MassAudubon, on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with friends and family and hope to see you outside!
