2018-2019 GRPS 1st Grade Program Request

At Blandford Nature Center we strive to have every child experience nature and history in a fun, hands-on way. Thanks to the generosity of Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation, we are able to provide outdoor science-based education programs to all Grand Rapids Public School first and third grade students.

PROGRAM REQUEST GUIDELINES

  • Due to staff resources, a maximum of 60 students can attend a program at one time.
  • There must be at least 1 chaperone for every 5 students and at least 1 chaperone accompanying each Blandford instructor at all times.
  • Please arrange for transportation to drop-off promptly at the time of the program and depart promptly after the completion of the entire program. 
  • All programs are taught outdoors, so please help students be prepared for the weather and the environment including appropriate footwear.

 While we will strive to be as accommodating as possible, know that providing your first and second choice does not automatically guarantee your requested program time and date.
