    Blandford Nature Center is offering "Saturday Drop-In Programs" throughout the fall. Each Saturday has a different theme and during some of these programs, we would like to open one of the historic buildings (Log Cabin, Schoolhouse, Pioneer Barn, or Blacksmith) so that visitors can experience living history. We also are extending the chance for volunteers to assist in leading the Saturday Drop-In Programs.

    Registered BNC Volunteers Only

    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.
