The Wattupa Reservation was once part of the nearby Wampanoag Reservation, this historically and ecologically significant land in the southeastern portion of the Bioreserve protected clean drinking water in North Watuppa Pound for City residents. With miles of trails through interior forest, Watuppa Reservation is a serene place to spot migrating birds and a secluded destination for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running.

Mass Audubon is the largest nature-based conservation organization in New England. Founded in 1896 by two women who fought for the protection of birds, Mass Audubon carries on their legacy by focusing on the greatest challenges facing the environment today: the loss of biodiversity, inequitable access to nature, and climate change. With the help of our 160,000 members and supporters, we protect wildlife, conserve, and restore resilient land, advocate for impactful environmental policies, offer nationally recognized education programs for adults and children, and provide endless opportunities to experience the outdoors at our wildlife sanctuaries.
