Update: Our Volunteer Activity was featured in an article by Accounting Today
On June 15, 2017 ALL staff volunteered at the Mass Audubon’s Habitat Education Center in Belmont, MA for the MSCPA Day of Service. Staff spent the day herding goats, gardening, and cleaning up the grounds.
The Habitat Education Center is a nature preserve located right in the heart of Belmont. The land includes a turtle pond, acres of forest, gardens, farming area, nature trails and habitat buildings. The goats that ALL helped herd (and played with!) are used to naturally cut the grass and provide fertilizer for the fields.
The Habitat Education Center is used for a variety of programs including camps for inner-city kids to experience nature, a partnership with a school for the blind which includes an assisted walking trail with braille monuments, and scientific studies with local schools. The center is funded by donations, an endowment, and by weddings that are hosted in their beautiful garden area.
The Habitat Education Center relies on volunteers to maintain their grounds and ALL was happy to help. ALL is committed to giving back to the community and through the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, ALL is able to support a variety of charities & causes throughout the year.
