Check out the new Audio Tour At East Point!

Northeastern Marine Science Center has launched new smartphone/tablet-accessible audio tour of East Point that is now live. There are stakes in the ground around East Point for people to use to identify their location, and the App shows them a map also. The App is available for download at, and then folks can search for marine science center to find our tour. This project was developed in collaboration with the Nahant Historical Society, Nahant SWIM, and a couple of individuals.

Nahant Thicket Wildlife Sanctuary | Update 2018

Mass Audubon is preparing to conduct restoration work at Nahant Thicket Wildlife Sanctuary.

Restoration efforts will focus on three major goals:

  1. managing vegetation to enhance wildlife habitat and the visual appeal of the outer boundaries of the thicket;
  2. addressing hydrological constraints that may contribute to localized flooding; and
  3. improving the visitor experience through improved parking, signage, and trails. For more information please read our restoration plan.

If you have any questions regarding this project please contact Amber Carr: (781) 259-2198
