Instructor: Allens Pond Sanctuary Staff
Audience: All (suitable for children 0 - 18 years)
Fee: Adults $0, Children $0.00m/ $0.00nm
Pack up the family, grab your friends and join us for an amazing afternoon of discovery and activities as we open our newest property - Stone Barn Farm - to the public!
This historic century-and-a-half old building will become the new center for program activities at the Sanctuary. With generous support from the People of Dartmouth through their Community Preservation Fund, Mass Audubon has now completed the restoration and transformation of this unique building from an unstable and run-down horse barn into a handsome multi-purpose facility that will henceforth provide a center for learning, public functions and sheltered work areas for many types of projects connecting with the special environment of the Sanctuary. The parged fieldstone structure, which is very rare in this part of the country, has now been protected and preserved hopefully for at least another century-and-a-half.
We have loads of family-friendly activities planned, along with snacks, exhibits, guided walks and an auction of beautiful and unique items!
Information on all of our South Coast properties will be available as well as general information on how you can become more involved with Mass Audubon through public programs, school vacation week activities, volunteer programs and membership.
Hope to see you there!
