Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center
Nature Nook

Our classroom offers nature play opportunities for curiosity, imagination and safe unstructured play.

There are many features to the space, like a nature art area, music area with a stage, garden areas, tree climbing areas and shelter building areas, where the campers have built a whole town and have named it ‘Uppy-town”. It is available for public use year-round and has many annual events like, Work for Wildlife day.

In the spring there are public volunteer events to help clean up the space, many pre-school families attend and help. Our donors from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts come to help refresh the space, with mulching, weeding, planting and trash pick up. The nature nook offers opportunities for experiencing nature play without having to be involved with our preschools or camps, since the area is open to the public.
