CANCELLED | Barnyard Buds

Need an excuse to get out of the house? Bring your tiny farmer to the Blandford Farm for this farm-themed version of our popular Nature Buds program! Each program will be hosted by a Blandford Farmer and will feature a barnyard tour, a story, and an activity, all geared towards our youngest visitors. There will also be some time for self-guided play in the farm playscape. New farm themes each week.

This program is designed for children ages 1-4 and their caregivers. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Older children are welcome but should be prepared for the slower pace of this program. Children under 12 months are free, but registration is required for all participants. Program will run rain, snow, or shine, so dress for the weather!

Additional Information: Online pre-registration is encouraged to reserve your spots. We cannot guarantee spots will be available if you drop-in the morning-of the program, as registration is first come, first serve. Please call the morning of the program if you would like to drop-in to ensure openings are available at 616-735-6240. Check-in starts at the Blandford Farm 10 minutes before the listed start time. Look for our staff person in the farmyard space between the large red animal barn and the barn playscape. Program registration fee covers all day admission to Blandford Nature Center (includes trails, Visitors Center, Wildlife Education Center, etc). Staff may take card payments or exact change.

Crafts may be done indoors depending on weather conditions including rain or wind.
