Sanctuary trails are open dawn to dusk daily. The center is typically open Tuesday–Saturday, 9:00 am–5:00 pm (closing at 4:00 pm on Saturdays in December and January). There is no admission charge, but donations are always welcome.

About the Center The 5,000 square foot Massabesic Audubon Center is located on a historic farm site. The Center is just minutes from downtown Manchester and is bordered by 130 acres of rolling fields and mature deciduous forest with woodland wetlands, a pond, streams, and marshes. The site has been preserved as a wildlife sanctuary that encompasses a diverse array of upland habitats. There are more than five miles of trails that lead to scenic Lake Massabesic, and the property is adjacent to thousands of undeveloped acres of Manchester Water Works land.

      Thanks Joanne. She is on antibiotics and apparently they were working because she's on the mend. It is just a matter of time though....she is 95. At least we got to see her. I'm really sad about this walk as I was looking forward to it!

      Glad to hear that she is on the mend! We may do this walk again as it is a beautiful place!

      Mary, you are the best! So sweet. I don't think I could be there by 9:00 so I will have to pass on the ride. If I do get my carcass out the door early enough I will meet you at the loop.,if I am not there, obviously I don't want anyone to wait around. If I don't see where you guys are (at the Audubon Center) I will call to get your whereabouts. Can't wait.

    Hi, I will be at the Loop in the parking lot in front of Home Depot at 9. I have a red truck and can take four others if anyone wants to drive with me.

    Hey Mary, I have an apt early on Saturday 8:45 a.m. I am concerned that I will be late for you and the others. I think it would be best if I cancelled. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi, I would like to carpool, as well. I'm in Salem or I could meet at the loop, also.

    April 8, 2014

    • Joanne A.

      Jill, Usually I would carpool (live in Windham) but have a 2 pm Salon Appt in Derry after the walk so taking my own car.

      Hi Penny, I did send a reply but am not sure where it went, as I don't see it here. If you can get to my house, we can go together. I will be walking Tuesday afternoon, and hope to see you then when we can talk more and make a plan.

      Kathy, I believe that Connie and Jackie are going. If you can drive to Connie's like you did for yesterday's, walk, I am sure you can drive up with them? Does that work Connie and Jackie?

      April 7, 2014

    • kathy

      Thanks, Jo-Jo. I will call Connie and check with her.

    Mary , may I travel with you for this event?

  • Joanne A.

    Good Morning! Here is an update on this walk as I walked it yesterday. As of now, there is still some snow on the trail and it is also quite muddy. I anticipate most of the snow being gone by the date of our walk, but I would suggest wearing either hiking boots or snow boots rather than sneakers to be safe. I thought it might be nice to have a picnic at the end of the walk. I am bringing cheese and crackers and fruit. If anyone wants to join in the picnic, please bring whatever you would like! There is a parking lot across for the Audubon Center.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
