We’re so glad you’re considering a visit to Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust. We have a variety of environmental education programs and immersive field trips for students in pre-school through grade 5. The facilities at our main campus, the Van Vleck Sanctuary, include a historic barn with a variety of live farm animals, a classroom facility and a maple sugar house. Our grounds provide a perfect spot for exploring the outdoors and for hands-on learning, with 200 acres of forests, ponds, farm fields, meadows, wetlands, and streams, all of which support a diversity of wildlife. See links below for some current program offerings.
We are excited to be in the process of updating our K-5 school programming to align with and complement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), bringing these standards to life in a meaningful way that engages not only students, but teachers as well!
