Join Mass Young Birders at Mass Audubon's MABA & Wildlife Sanctuary in Canton, MA for a morning of birding the many different habitats this space has to offer!

The Wildlife Sanctuary is a known nesting spot for breeding Great Horned and Barred Owls in the area. It has a sprawling meadow, access to woodlands, and a trail that follows a brook through the property. Not to mention, the number of vernal pools that provide resources for breeding birds AND the many critters that use them before they dry up.
