Learn From our Sanctuary Docents
Sunday visitors have a wonderful opportunity to enrich their experience by learning from knowledgeable Sanctuary Docents. Docents are volunteers who are committed to learning about nature and sharing their knowledge with others and can be found at interesting locations on the property.
Docents are on duty:|
Between Labor Day & Memorial Day,
Sundays, and Monday holidays,
10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Docents interpret a number of topics, in a variety of habitats using hand-on materials including natural objects, nets, magnifying glasses, telescopes, and field guidebooks.
Sunday visitors can also join a Docent on a free 60-minute nature hike that begins at 1:00 pm in front of the Nature Center. These nature hikes are for all ages and can be a wonderful way to learn more about Massachusetts wildlife.
