AMC 20s/30s: Volunteer for farmyard chores at Drumlin Farm

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Trip dates: Sunday, April 28, 2019 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Join Boston's AMC Young Members to volunteer at Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm and Wildlife Sanctuary!

We will assist the livestock staff with chores at the Poultry House. The outdoor pens (which the chickens are in all the time, year around) currently have a pebble base. The livestock manager wants the pebbles dug out and replaced with a layer of sand which would provide the chickens with better conditions for dust bathing, something chickens really like to do! The chickens will be moved out of the way during our work. The Poultry House is right on the farmyard and popular with our visitors.

Afterwards, we can explore the farm and wildlife sanctuary.
