Mass Audubon is a non-profit Massachusetts-based environmental conservation organization that seeks to educate the public on statewide environmental issues. The goal of our project was to propose, Global Positioning System (GPS) map, and recommend educational approaches to a trail connecting the existing trail network at Mass Audubon’s Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary to the site of the new Blackstone Visitor Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. Through interviews, comparative analysis of other trails, and research on the unique features along the interconnector trail, we proposed and blazed a trail route, developed educational components, and provided Mass Audubon with recommendations for further improvements along this trail.
