Public Programs and Events at Blandy

Blandy's public outreach attracts visitors to one of the region's most beautiful outdoor destinations and encourages an understanding and appreciation of environmental issues and the natural world. We reach the public in countless ways--through illustrated talks and workshops; tours and field trips; interpretive signs and brochures; summer and winter programs for kids; annual events such as Garden Fair and ArborFest; and through sponsorship of an active community garden. Visitors also come to Blandy to walk, picnic, birdwatch, visit the gardens, and walk their dogs.

Public programs, tours, and events are offered throughout the year and by special arrangement. Our programs emphasize environmental issues, gardening, ecology, natural history, and living lightly on the land. Most public programs are aimed at the interested citizen and do not require specialized knowledge, and many are specifically designed for children and families.

FOSA programs must sometimes be canceled or rescheduled due to poor weather or other conflicts. To check on the status of a program, check Blandy's Facebook page or call 540-837-1758 Ext. 224 or Ext. 287.
