Nature and historic buildings provide a charming backdrop for your next event! Blandford Nature Center has various facilities we make available for rentals.

Rentals are charged on an hourly basis, and we require membership to rent a space at Blandford. We do want each rental to connect with our mission of educating, engaging, and empowering our community to become stewards of the natural world that sustains us. Our policy is that a non-mission related event must also book an engaging educational program as well for the same day of rental. You may choose from our many programs already designed, including our animal programs, or we can customize a program based on your interests. The program cost is in addition to the building rental fee. Typical program costs are $5 a participant, with an $80 program minimum.  

Buildings available for rental include the Visitor Center Auditorium*, Learning Lab, and the One Room Schoolhouse
