Programs for Schools and Children/Young Adult Groups
At Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary, we offer a multitude of fun and educational nature-based programs. These include school and homeschool programs developed to align with Massachusetts’ education frameworks, as well as programs for groups such as Scouts, birthdays, and afterschool groups. Broadmoor’s 854 acres along the Charles River in Natick and Sherborn covers a diversity of landscapes including fields, forests, and wetlands. The Saltonstall Nature Center, a converted 1911 barn, is an example of green technology at its best: it produces as much energy as the center needs.
A sampling of our program categories:
- Habitat Explorations
- Scout Badges
- Green Building Tours
- Animal Groups (Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians etc.)
- Birthday Parties
Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary's school programs are designed to develop elementary and middle school students’ curiosity about nature into appreciation for their local environment. Each program is aligned with the Massachusetts Department of Education frameworks with strands in Life Science, Earth Science, History, and/or Geography. Whether the program takes place at your site or ours, we will work with you to develop a curriculum that meets your needs and the frameworks.
