Take 5: Hit the Trails

Earth Month is wrapping up this week and it’s been terrific seeing so many people get involved, explore Mass Audubon’s sanctuaries, and learn about what you can do to combat climate change. Thankfully, we don’t have to stop celebrating nature and all its wonders after April ends!

Our statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries offers hundreds of miles of trails to explore through every kind of habitat this beautiful state has to offer. To get you inspired to get outdoors and hit the trails, here are five photos from our annual Picture This: Your Great Outdoors photo contest of trails that you can explore right now at a sanctuary near you. (Okay, it’s really six photos; it was just too hard to narrow down!)

    The photo that is labeled Habitat is lovely, but it isn’t Habitat. It looks like it could be Rock Meadow, which is also in Belmont, but not part of Mass Audubon.

      You’re right! The photo was taken on the Western Greenway, 1,200 acres of interconnected open space in Waltham, Lexington, and Belmont, of which both Habitat and neighboring Rock Meadow are a part.
