Work for Wildlife at Mass Audubon Volunteer Day
MASSACHUSETTS – Join the Mass Audubon Society for a day of family fun as they spruce up their trails, gardens, and nature centers and dive into other spring cleaning projects at their 10th Annual Statewide Volunteer Day on April 30.
Spend the morning helping one of our wildlife sanctuaries get a jump on spring cleaning while you reconnect with nature. Come alone, bring your family, or invite a group of friends to join you. They’ll have a variety of volunteer projects suitable for all ages at 14 sites across Massachusetts.
There are plenty of activities planned for all ages and abilities, whether you’re looking for kid-friendly work (preparing gardens for spring planting) or more strenuous activities (trail restoration). They can also provide a community service verification letter for your three hours of volunteering. Bring a picnic lunch and spend time exploring (and enjoying) the sanctuary when the morning’s work is done.
The following projects have been coordinated at sites North of Boston:
- Invasive Plant Removal at Cedar Pond Wildlife Sanctuary in Wenham
- Create an Exploration & Play Area; Maintain a Nature Trail; Prepare Sunken Garden for Science Study & Plantings at the Endicott Wildlife Sanctuary in Wenham.
