Tour MassWildlife Headquarters

Sunday, Feb. 11, 1 to 3 p.m. Sponsored by Westborough Community Land Trust. Have you ever seen the huge mostly-glass building that is the headquarters of MassWildlife (formerly Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife) in Westborough and wondered why the building looks like that, or what is inside? We will receive a private, in-depth, off-hours tour from outreach coordinator Sue Sacco. We’ll learn about the building’s cutting-edge “green” features and get a look at the extensive wildlife collection housed there. Please plan to be on time, as the doors to the building will be locked once we begin the tour. After the building tour, we’ll finish by taking a walk around some of the MassWildlife property and talk about what happens there. Traction devices attached to boots are strongly recommended if the temperature is below freezing. Before leaving, check for cancellations.
