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 on the dates below, starting at 8:00 a.m. through the middle of December (or as long as the weather cooperates).

Sunday -- December 4, 11, 18

Wednesday -- November 30, December 14

Thursday -- December 1, 15

Invite a group of friends or colleagues to come along. 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, but smaller groups are welcome as well.

Additional Comments

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

We'll provide tools, gloves, and building materials
