Land Stewardship Opportunities

“We must not only protect the nature, we must restore what has been destroyed … Once our natural splendor is destroyed and man can no longer walk with beauty or wonder at nature, his spirit will wither…”
 – President Johnson
Blandford Nature Center hosts several community “stewardship days” throughout the year. Work focuses on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean up and removal of invasive species on several sections of our 143-acre site.
Education is always a major focus of the day. Stewardship Days provide close-up, hands-on work that has tangible results. Community members learn to identify and manage plants that may be growing in their own backyards, their schools or city parks. Volunteers will learn to identify common invasive plants like buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle.

Walk-ins are welcome. We meet in the main visitor center parking lot. Be prepared to work off the trail with sturdy shoes and a water bottle.
