Program Choices

 Farm Chores

We need your help caring for our farm animals! Spend a morning or afternoon at the farm where you'll collect eggs and feed hay to the sheep, goats, cows, and chickens. Afterwards, you'll spend some quality time hanging out in the pens/pastures with some of our farmyard friends.

Habitat Hike

Join one of our Teacher Naturalists for a seasonal hike on pathways less travelled, over the drumlin and through the woods, as you search for animal tracks and signs and investigate their New England winter survival strategies. What plants and animals will we find along the way?

More Adventures Await

Private family tours are also available at Mass Audubon's other Metro West wildlife sanctuaries—Broadmoor in Natick and Habitat in Belmont. Explore them all this fall and winter!
