In an effort to increase our impact on the community and better the Whittemore Wildlife Santuary we currently have the follow projects being completed or planned. In order to continue these efforts we need your support. Funds will support trail signage, operations, community events and more. Thank you for your support.

The Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary (WWS) strives to promote environmental education and to preserve the natural wonders of Tewksbury Township and the surrounding areas.

The 180-acre sanctuary was bequeathed to Tewksbury Township by Helen A. Whittemore. The facility includes The Roving Nature Center and 11 miles of trails for hiking, dog walking and horseback riding. Trails traverse mainly wooded areas with wetlands, ravines and hilly terrain. The sanctuary also serves as the perfect stage for birders and nature lovers to view local avian species and other wildlife.

The Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary is open to the public Monday –Sunday during daylight hours. Please respect nature and take all trash and dog waste back out with you.

Programs offered at the Sanctuary include but are not limited to: summer nature day camps, maple sugaring, year-round public programs, in-school programs and school field trips, children's garden quilt, birthday parties and scouting programs. Contact Us to schedule your trip, party or program!

The Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary is managed by The Friends of Whittemore, a volunteer board  and members devoted to the promotion of wildlife education. The Friends of Whittemore T/A The Roving Nature Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The funding for the Sanctuary comes from program revenue, donations, fundraisers and grants.

The Board endeavors to stimulate awareness and understanding of the total environment- natural, altered, human and historic - among people of all ages to develop a sense of responsibility for the care and wise use of our natural resources.
