Public Library in Mass Audubon program

Marlborough – As a way to provide families in its service area with access to inexpensive, fun and educational outdoor activities, the Marlborough Public Library is participating in Mass Audubon's Library Partners program, which offers opportunities to explore and enjoy nature.

Library patrons can use the Marlborough Public Library's Mass Audubon membership card to visit 45 Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries statewide at the discounted rate of just $1 per person (limit one family per membership card).

Mass Audubon properties include Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport, with some of the best birding in coastal New England; Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, where spring means bluebirds and baby farm animals; and Pleasant Valley in the Berkshires.

Bird watching is one of the fastest-growing outdoor activities in America, and Mass Audubon offers hundreds of programs for beginning to expert birders and many opportunities to volunteer and participate in citizen science to benefit statewide wildlife and habitat protection efforts.

Mass Audubon protects more than 33,000 acres of conservation land, conducts educational programs for 200,000 children and adults annually, and advocates for sound environmental policies at the local, state and federal levels.
