Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary
Fun Facts about the popular Wildlife Sanctuary
One of the fun educational places that we like to visit is the Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln, Massachusetts. It's a great place to spend a day learning all about the local area of wild life.
One of the nice things about this place is that it's open all year. In the winter months, you can learn about how wildlife survives the harsh New England Winters.
This is also a great place to take school field trips and scouts trips.
