Elementary Outdoor Education Program
Blandford Nature Center helps you bring hands-on, natural learning experiences to your students through our many outdoor field trips. We guide environmental learning experiences for students in pre-school through sixth grade, all of which are seasonally based.
Every season brings more to learn and experience, and Blandford's Elementary Outdoor Education Program captures this in a series of interactive units. Download our brochure for details on each season's field trip program units.Starting Fall 2012, the cost for the program is $4.00 per student, with a $80.00 program minimum. Teachers and chaperones are included in the price on a 1:5 ratio.
