Our programs strive to help people get their hands dirty and discover their relationship to the natural world. Our job, and our passion, is to invite our community to connect with nature – whether that be standing knee-high in water to learn about stream ecology or planting squash seeds to start a garden. We want to share this one-of-a-kind education with the community and make every visit to Blandford a new one.
