Acorns to Oaks Society

Make a difference at Blandford


More than 50 years ago, our founder, Mary Jane Dockeray spearheaded what is known today as Blandford Nature Center. Over this half century, she, along with countless supporters, staff and community members, worked to provide a natural space for the greater Grand Rapids community to explore, engage and grow. Thanks to our generous donors—like you—we are able to continue her legacy today and into the future as we provide the environmental and education programming to visitors of every age and status.
