Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary hosts free programs for adults and families

Jun 22, 2023

Two free public programs kicked off the week of June 19 at the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary, and will continue into the summer.

On Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. the sanctuary will lead a nature-based program guided by an experienced educator and naturalist. Participants will create art and learn about science, technology, engineering and math. Attendees will also listen to stories and explore the outdoors. Each week will have a different theme focusing on sensory development and environmental conservation. 

On Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the sanctuary will host “Summer Days at the Stone Barn,” for families and individuals. A naturalist will be on site at the sanctuary’s stone barn during the entire time period, so participants can stop by any time. Activities include natural artifact discovery, bird identification, a scavenger hunt, pond netting and picnicking. Participants can also receive help choosing a trail.
