Upcoming events

  • Sep-09-2017 9:00 AM - Sep-09-2017 12:00 PM

    Eco-Stewardship work focuses on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean-up and removal of invasive species (like buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle) on several sections of our 143-acre site. Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify and manage plants that may be growing in their own backyards, their schools or city parks and how those plants and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.

    This volunteer option is for individuals or groups that would like to attend an open volunteer event, like Eco-Stewardship Work Days, without becoming a registered Blandford Nature Center volunteer. Please keep in mind that while a Volunteer Application does not need to be completed, you will still be required to sign a Liability Waiver at these volunteer events.

    Have you ever wanted to share your knowledge for all things outdoors? Love working with kids?

    Then please join us for our Fall Trail Guide Training to dust-off your BNC curriculum knowledge or learn it for the first time. The day will be spent highlighting 3 of our most popular fall field trips programs as well as stopping mid-day for a potluck lunch to catch-up with other trail guide volunteers and BNC staff.
