Programs and Events
Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust provides environmental education programs that connect science, nature, agriculture and art for all ages. Every week, Flanders brings its special hands-on experiences to hundreds of children, both at the Van Vleck Farm and Nature Sanctuary and in the schools. A valuable resource for teachers, Flanders conducts programs for educators looking for new and different ways to make science come alive for their students inside and outside the classroom.
Each season, Flanders sponsors region-wide events at the Van Vleck Farm and Nature Sanctuary, attracting thousands of visitors who discover New England rural traditions at budget-friendly, day-long celebrations, such as Farm Day, Autumn Festival or the Maple Celebration, to name just a few.
Flanders is a positive community resource, leading adult and family workshops on innovative topics that provide new insights into the natural world around us, both at the Van Vleck Farm and Nature Sanctuary and off-site.
