Help Create More Access to Nature

As part of our Action Agenda, we’re dedicated to creating more access to nature for everyone in Massachusetts by opening up more trails, new wildlife sanctuaries, and urban greenspaces. You can help us achieve our goals by donating today.

As a loyal readers to Mass Audubon’s blog, we wanted to update you on an important change. We recently switched to a better, more secure blog subscription service and are shutting down email subscriptions delivered through our old provider.

Here’s the catch—due to privacy concerns, we cannot automatically “move” you to the new service. But it’s easy to re-subscribe.

Find “Don’t Miss a Post” on any blog post (either on the top-right corner if on a desktop or the very bottom on a mobile device). Enter your email. After you click the “Subscribe” button, just follow the instructions to confirm your subscription.

That’s it! Thanks again for reading, commenting, and sharing. And if you have any ideas for future posts you would like to see, send them our way!
