Barnyard Buds

Bring your tiny farmer to the Blandford Farm for this farm-themed version of our popular Nature Buds program! Each program will feature a guided barnyard tour, a story, and an activity. After the program you are welcome to stay for playtime in the Farm playscape. This program is designed for children ages 1-5 and their caregivers. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Older children are welcome but should be prepared for the slower pace of this program. Registration is required for all participants including children under 12 months.

Caregivers and Child Members: $5
Caregivers and Child Non-Members: $8
Infants Under 12 months: Free (Registration still required) 

This program is recommended for caregivers and their toddlers aged 1-5. An adult chaperone is required to register and attend at this program.

This program will be taking place at Blandford Nature Center Farm located at 3143 Milo Street NW, Grand Rapids MI 49504. There are no restrooms available at the Blandford Farm so please plan accordingly.  

Please Note: This program will take place mainly outdoors. Crafts may be done indoors depending on weather conditions including rain or wind. All participants ages 2 and up are required to wear masks for the duration of the program and will be expected to stay socially distanced as much as possible.
