What to Expect When You Visit
Are you preparing to visit us with your children or a group of students, including those with special needs? If so, we encourage you to review this step-by-step photo tour (Social Story) of Drumlin Farm that shows you what to expect!
Our goal is to integrate your classroom curricula with our educational programs that 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 Massachusetts Department of Education 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.
Whether you’re leading a Scout group in search of badges, planning a birthday party, or running a homeschool or afterschool program, our program coordinator and teacher-naturalists can help.
Taking part in one of our programs allows your participants to gain an appreciation for and awareness of the natural world and your connection to it. We offer onsite and outreach programs specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of your group.
