Nature Discovery Program

Nature Discovery Program

Ready to start a Wild Summer Adventure?

Our Nature Discovery field trips are seasonal programs that highlight the plants and animals that thrive and live during the summer at Blandford. Participants will be encouraged by their wonder and curiosity to hike through 3 different habitats: Forest, Meadow and Marsh to find life in every nook and cranny. At Blandford, the changing seasons inspire sensory investigation and role-playing that will help program participants answer the big questions of “Where do animals live?”, “Why do they live there?” and “What does it take for them to survive?”.

Nature Discovery Programs are offered on your choice of a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday anytime between 9:00am to 2:00pm.

Program Cost

The cost for the program is $5.00 per student, with a $80.00 program minimum.

Teachers and chaperones are included in the price on a 1:5 ratio. Additional adults are $5.00 each.

An invoice will follow your emailed program confirmation. Invoice payment is preferred ahead of the field trip date however you may pay at the time of the program.
