13.40. Blandford Nature Center

February 9, 2013

Winter is here, time to get out in it to enjoy and learn how things in nature live in the snowy cold MI winter. The Blandford Nature Center is a great place to all this and much much more. They have trails, snow shoe rentals, nature center, etc. with 143 acres of outdoor educational fun.

They do much better explain themselves than me, from their website:

We are an independent, charitable non-profit, governed by a volunteer board.  Learn more about our board and staff members on those pages of our website.

Using 143 acres of land and wildlife as the backdrop, Blandford Nature Center provides education and community programs that:

  • Educate our community to understand our environment, our heritage, and our connection to natural systems.
  • Engage people to actively use natural spaces and become stewards of the natural world.
  • Empower people to embrace nature, new perspectives, and sustainable practices.

Blandford Nature Center believes children and adults learn best through personal experience. Our job, and our passion, is to invite our community to get their hands dirty in nature – whether that be standing knee-high in water to learn about stream ecology or planting squash seeds to start a garden.

Anytime of the year is a great time o visit. They are located at 1715 Hillburn Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504 * 616.735.6240
