Jeans & Jewels Gala

Wear your jeans with your bling! Blandford Nature Center’s 7th annual Jeans & Jewels Gala will be an event to remember.

Held outdoors on a beautiful Fall evening, guests can get up close and personal with our resident wildlife, bid on unique live and silent auction packages, indulge in local craft beer, and savor a farm-fresh meal with friends.

The Blandford Nature Center Jeans & Jewels Gala provides an opportunity to show your support for environmental education while enjoying an evening outdoors. All funds raised will help Blandford to further their mission of engaging and empowering our community through enriching experiences in nature!
