Programs for Schools and Children/Young Adult Groups
Drumlin Farm is a 232-acre wildlife sanctuary and working farm located in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The sanctuary features an array of natural habitats, including fields, shrublands, woodland, and wetlands. At the heart of the sanctuary is a working farm with both livestock and crops operations. A well maintained trail system, displays of native wildlife, and interactive features allow visitors and students to experience nature and explore sustainable farming.
Drumlin Farm’s education staff is committed to an inquiry-based integrated teaching approach, customized to meet your curricular needs and the needs of your students.
A sampling of our program topics:
- Farming and agriculture
- Habitats of New England
- Freshwater Ecology
- Ecological Issues
- Animal Adaptations (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects)
- Conservation Science (Grades 7-12)
Our goal is to integrate your classroom curricula with our educational programs. These programs offer opportunities for students to investigate the ecology of diverse habitats and learn about the adaptations of the plants and animals that live there. We design our programs to support the Massachusetts Department of Education Life and Earth Science, Technology and Engineering, History, and/or Geography frameworks. Whether the program takes place at your site or ours, we offer curriculum consultation before and after every visit to ensure our programs meet your learning expectations.
