Homeschool field trips to Blandford Nature Center will immerse students in nature and are designed to help integrate Next  Generation Science Standards while engaging students’ natural sense of  inquiry.  Each 90 minute program is offered from 1:30 to 3:00 pm, taught by our highly experienced staff and is geared toward children 5 to 10 years of age. (Students ages 11-13 are invited to attend our Middle Years program!)  Students will be split into groups based on age so that program content is appropriate. All students will sign up via this link, then the group will be split into four, evenly sized, smaller groups based on age.

Monday, September 16, 2019: Fall Wonders

Explore the fall woods & fields to learn how animals prepare for winter. The changing season inspires sensory investigation of life cycles.

Monday, October 21: Ecosystem Energy

Everybody has to eat something and something eats everything! Follow the sun's energy by exploring plants, animals, and fungi through the lens of a producer, consumer, or decomposer.

Monday, November 18, 2019: Winter Explorers

Discover the beauty of winter and the secrets of animal survival during this cold season. Find out first hand why some animals have feathers or fur and others have shells, scales, or slimy skin.
