GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  – Blandford Nature Center is helping a group of Grand Rapids students overcome so-called Nature Deficit Disorder.

This is the first year the nature center is partnering with West Side Christian School to provide outdoor learning on the school’s grounds, located at 955 Westend Ave. NW.  Blandford staff will lead the three to four seasonal outdoor lessons, which will help the school in implementing its Next Generation Science Standards.

Blandford Nature Center hopes to expand the program to other schools in the future.  For more information, visit the organization’s website here.
