Drumlin Farm is a wildlife sanctuary and farm operated by The Massachusetts Audubon Society. On the Yale Day of Service, we will be working in the Sheep Shack to skirt the annually sheared wool for use. Skirting is removing the straw and other debris from the sheep wool in preparation for sending it to the spinnery. The shack can accommodate 10 adult volunteers at a time. If people bring their children they would not be included them in that number, so plan on 10 adults, plus children. Participants are encouraged to enjoy the farm before and after the event.
Note that there will be two shifts: the first from 9-10:30am and the next from 10:30am-12pm.
We are sorry, but the First Shift at this site has reached capacity; please select the second shift and feel free to visit the farm before you join us at the sheep shack. If you have questions, contact the Day of Service Site Coordinator for the site listed at the bottom of the site description. We look forward to having you join us for the Yale Day of Service!
