This urban sanctuary, located on the grounds of the former Boston State Hospital, offers public programs year-round. Two miles of trails and boardwalks traverse meadows and wetlands where wildlife abounds, including coyotes, pheasants, and many species of migratory birds. The sanctuary's George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center is one of the "greenest" buildings in Boston, teaching environmentally sustainable design by example.
