COVID-19 Message – Thank you to our members and visitors. We appreciate your continued support and hope that you will consider a donation, to help us with the maintenance of our properties, so we can continue to offer these beautiful nature sanctuaries for your enjoyment.

As a small private, non-profit conservation organization, we are allowed to keep our properties open to the public in accordance with local regulations at this time. This means no large gatherings of over ten people and wear a mask if you cannot remain six feet apart at all times.

We’re all in this together. Please Stay Safe.

The mission of Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries, Inc. (SPABS) is to protect and preserve Falmouth’s open space wildlife habitat, historic buildings, and to provide educational classes to all ages.
