about Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm:
Visitors can view several varieties of birds in captivity. A majestic red-tailed hawk, a mysterious barred owl, a hungry turkey vulture, and others are on display.
Kids will enjoy a bumpy but fun tractor-pulled hay ride around the nature trails that circle the farm. Bird-watching from the ride is encouraged. The fee for tractor rides is $2 for adults; $1 for children.
Family Programs: Nature programs are offered for children two years and older. Single-session programs are available. Fees range from $10 to $90. Drumlin Farm's nature and agriculture programs allow visitors to explore the farm and join teacher-naturalists as they guide the experience with hands-on activities, hikes, farm chores, and wildlife investigations.
The Forest Discovery Trail is an interactive trail that winds through the red pine forest, on which visitors can explore the forest as one of the animals. You can get a hawk's-eye view of dinner, build a mouse house, and cozy up in a giant bird's nest. The trail habitat is a unique change of pace from the farmyard, and a wonderful place for nature lovers of all ages to hike, explore, and learn more about the forest and the animals who inhabit it.
Daily Activities: General visitors to the farm can participate in a variety of activities and informal demonstrations that highlight seasonal occurrences on the farm. Drop-in discovery activities are free with general admission to the farm.
Summer Camp: Sessions are open to children ages four through high school. One- and two-week sessions run from late June to mid-August. Programs focus on habitat discovery and animal investigation, farm life and caretaking, and nature exploration. Children may participate in one or more sessions. Half and full-day programs are available. Members of the Massachusetts Audubon Society receive a discount.
