New this year are the calves, born just a few weeks ago. And it’s not just about the animals, come learn about veggie babies and insect babies too! The event will feature a passport for collecting stamps at our many learning stations and a surprise treat to decorate and eat.

The farm will close to all visitors at 3:30 p.m. and re-open at 4 p.m. for the special Bringing Up Baby event, which runs until 6 p.m.

Mass Audubon works to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Together with more than 100,000 members, we care for 33,000 acres of conservation land, provide educational programs for 200,000 children and adults annually, and advocate for sound environmental policies at local, state, and federal levels. Mass Audubon’s mission and actions have expanded since our beginning in 1896 when our founders set out to stop the slaughter of birds for use on women’s fashions. Today we are the largest conservation organization in New England. Our statewide network of 45 wildlife sanctuaries welcomes visitors of all ages and serves as the base for our conservation, education, and advocacy work.
