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.
Blandford Nature Center Programs are available for all ages and levels of experience.
Who’s up for a new year challenge? A challenge to ditch the television and GET OUTSIDE?!
As a part of the Blandford community you play a vital role in connecting others to nature. We’re asking you to share your outdoor adventure idea to serve as a catalyst to inspire others to do the same. Your adventure idea may become part of a YouTube photo montage, in addition to our Blandford Facebook posts.
Dr. Mary Jane Dockeray, founder of BlandFord Nature Center, will be available in the Visitor Center every Wednesday from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. Mary Jane will be able to answer your questions, help you interpret something you saw or found on a hike at Blandford, or just teach you more about the natural world.
