BNC Moments Facebook Live Video Series:
Meet Our Ambassadors & A Taste of Blandford
While, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blandford Nature Center temporarily closed its doors and programs, our expansive trails remain open for public use. As we see so many in our community turn to nature for rejuvenation and healing during these uncertain times, the daily, continued use of our trails lifts our spirits, warms our hearts, and truly embraces our mission of engaging and empowering our community through enriching experiences in nature. We understand the community’s need for normalcy and desire to continue to get outside and seek solace. We wanted to capture some of Blandford Nature Center’s “BNC Moments,” favorite moments with our Wildlife Ambassadors, educators, and activities, and share them on Facebook Live with all our friends, so they too can connect with nature and stay engaged with community while we practice social distancing and stay at home.
If you missed the BNC Moments Facebook Live broadcasts, which aired daily between March 31 through April 9, don’t worry! We have captured these moments on video and you can watch them now by scrolling through the images and clicking the link to the desired video moment below!
Meet Our Ambassadors
We know you are missing our wildlife ambassadors as much as we are as we stay at home. A FACEBOOK LIVE Virtual connection can be an excellent alternative to a visit, and what a great opportunity to learn more about the Michigan native wildlife we have all grown to love! So grab your kiddos and join us for an up close and virtually personal opportunity to meet some of our wildlife ambassadors as well as ask questions of the expert wildlife staff that cares for them! Each show provides a theme-related craft idea for kids with a link to instructions!

Closing Message from Jason
Thank you for watching! We hope you enjoyed our BNC Moments video series. Also, as we rely on our programs, admission fees, and the generosity of donors to care for our animal ambassadors and maintain our staff, facilities, and grounds, our closure and program cancellations have made this a very difficult time for Blandford Nature Center. If you are in a position to help, could you please consider making a donation so that we can continue providing the gift of nature and programs, post COVID-19, by clicking the Donate Now button below? Thank you for your support.
