At The Blandford Nature Center families can visit a variety of animals and reptiles, join the Youth Farm Team program, start their own patch to grow in the community gardens and learn about all things natural.
Over 4 miles of outdoor trails guide you through a variety of microcosmic ecosystems, they vary in length and difficulty so it's easy to choose which suits your group. The Nature Nook play area offers a rustic, natural play experience with seating for adults provided.
Additional features include Summer Day Camps, Outdoor Education Programs and Wildlife Sleepover Program. There is also a pioneer village with historically recreated buildings like the blacksmith's and schoolhouse, but these are infrequently open to the public so check ahead for open days.
