Be Kind! Massachusetts

Be Kind! is a public awareness campaign urging all of us to act with kindness while visiting our state parks – to the people around us, park staff, and the plants and animals that call these spaces home

Kindness counts in DCR parks

More people than ever are visiting our State Park System, and it’s easy to see why. These special places invite us to enjoy nature, connect with others, and contribute to our health and well-being.

We all have a place in our parks, but our actions impact each other and our environment – so let’s be kind!
