Snowshoe & Binocular Rentals

Snow days have arrived! Come out to one of our Centers (Massabesic Center in Auburn or McLane Center in Concord) to enjoy the winter landscape. We now offer snowshoe and binocular rentals to visitors during our regular business hours of Tuesday – Friday, 11am-4pm.

Snowshoes can be rented when 6 inches or more of snow is on the ground. Binoculars can be rented in all weather conditions. All rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis for use on McLane Center and Massabesic Center properties only and must be returned by 4pm the day of rental. Adult and youth sizes are available for all gear. How-to handouts and trail maps are included.

Snowshoes rentals: $10/member, $15/non-members
Binocular rentals: FREE for members, $5/non-members

For large groups, please contact our Education Team (Shelby Morelli at McLane [email protected] and Slater Roosa at Massabesic [email protected]). Guided tours at YOUR location are also available!

About Us

Founded in 1914, NH Audubon’s mission is to protect New Hampshire’s natural environment for wildlife and for people. It is an independent statewide membership organization with four nature centers throughout the state. Expert educators give programs to children, families, and adults at centers and in schools. Staff biologists and volunteers conduct bird conservation efforts such as the Peregrine Falcon restoration. NH Audubon protects thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and is a voice for sound public policy on environmental issues.
