Are you handy with a hammer, saw, and measuring tape? Do you like to build things, work with wood, and see progress? We are looking for volunteers to help us build a boardwalk and extend an accessible trail through the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury.

We have full- and half-day shifts available, starting at 8:00 a.m., on the following dates:

August: 10, 11, 24, 25

September: 14, 15, 28, 29

October: 12, 13, 26, 27

November: 2, 3

Got a group? Great! This is a perfect opportunity for corporate team building and scout projects (age 16 and up) We can have groups of up to 10 people.

Not part of a group? That’s OK -- join other volunteers.

Only available to do one day? That's OK, too! Want to do more? Of course!

Additional Comments

Bring water, snacks and/or lunch, sunscreen and bug spray. Wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather (e.g., possible rain showers).

We'll provide tools, gloves, and building materials
