12th Annual Statewide Volunteer Day
Saturday, April 28, 2018
Beautiful weather and appreciative Mass Audubon staff welcomed 650 volunteers to 17 wildlife sanctuaries for Mass Audubon’s 12th Annual Statewide Volunteer Day.
As in previous years, volunteers chose from a variety of stewardship projects suitable for all ages and abilities at sites across the state.
Individuals, families, scout troops, and gardening clubs raked, filled wheelbarrows, planted, pruned, and dug for three hours on a beautiful Saturday morning, helping our sanctuaries get ready for the busy summer season ahead.
Look at what these hard-working volunteers accomplished in just one morning:
To our wonderful volunteers, we say “Thank you for being nature heroes!” You helped us accomplish in one morning many conservation tasks that would have taken weeks (if not months) to complete.
Check out this slideshow to see some of our amazing volunteers and their equally amazing results.
Statewide Volunteer Day is an annual event, so we hope to see you next year!
If you missed Statewide Volunteer Day, we hope you will consider volunteering at one of our wildlife sanctuaries during the coming year. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and help Mass Audubon protect the nature of Massachusetts.
