Family Volunteer Day is the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and give back with a great morning at Green Chimneys!

There is an old saying on farms, “Many hands make light work.”

Taking care of horses, donkeys, goats, camels, llamas, and hundreds of other animals is a BIG job. Stalls need to be cleaned, buckets have to be scrubbed, tack needs to be maintained and animals need to be fed.

Spend a day in the main barns of Green Chimneys and join our farm staff in tackling large and small animal care jobs.

We have different tasks for different ages and abilities – everyone will be able to do something. This is a great weekend activity for families. Come dressed for the weather and be prepared for a fun and interesting morning of hands-on work at the Green Chimneys Farm & Wildlife Center!

All participants must be 7 years of age or older. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
