Every year, NH Audubon celebrates Earth Day at Massabesic Center in Auburn.
Earth Day is one spectacular day of the year. It is a time where we all come to together to recognize the beauty of Earth. We spend the day reflecting on our actions and how these actions can help protect the place we call home.
Join the staff and volunteers at New Hampshire Audubon’s Massabesic Center on April 24, 2021, for a day full of naturalist walks and nature activities. For COVID-19 safety, reservations are necessary to attend. Sign up for one of three time slots and participate in building a bird house, going on a scavenger hunt, planting seeds, going on a nature themed walk, or observing the live animals who live at the center. Spots are limited so sign up today! Prices are per family, $10 (Member rate) and $15 (Non-Members).
Because of safety, this year we are not releasing a recovered animal back into the wild as we normally do. But you will be able to visit with one of our ambassador raptors, like the Barn Owl.
Plus, everyone gets to take home a tree sapling to plant!
Time slots for sign up are: 10-11:30am; 12-1:30pm; and 2-3:30pm. Attendees can select a ticket for a specific time when registering.
