Farm Day Celebration
Capturing the sights, sounds, and smells of a real New England Farm, Flanders’ Farm Day is an annual favorite for families.

Come celebrate the great outdoors and get a taste of the farming life. The event will be held rain or shine.

Location: Van Vleck Farm and Nature Sanctuary

Flanders Letterbox Series
Flanders has planted several letterboxes on the family friendly trails at their preserves and sanctuaries. Combining art and nature in a fun interactive way, letterboxing is a popular treasure hunting activity done world-wide. At Flanders, the letterboxing clues include educational comments about the natural world. Anyone who hikes at least twelve of the letterboxing trails at Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust, stamps the letters from those trails in their passport and presents their passport at the Flanders office will be given the opportunity to sign their Tail Name on our Letterboxer “Hall of Fame” board and will receive a small prize.
