Flanders is also a land trust with extensive nature sanctuaries for nature and wildlife observation and hiking. Top notch educational programs for youth and adults. Famous for their maple sugaring operation and demonstrations. Disclaimer: I co-chair their Photography Club and lead nature hikes.

Great summer camp that I used to attend when I was a kid. All of the volunteers worked hard and cared about the camp and teaching kids about the environment and different animal species. Overall, great experience and also very educational.

My family and I enjoy hiking the trails at the nature preserve. There are some nice hikes through the woods and good look-outs over ponds. The maple sugar shack is fantastic, with tours during the season (check the website, but usually Feb-Mar). They collect their...More

Big fan of this place for a trail walk or hike any time of the year. The bog walk, as I refer to it, is less pleasant during the hot and sticky months, but the rest of the trails are beautiful with such peaceful surroundings....More

So glad this land is preserved, and that the staff has taken an active interest in the community and the town's land. Also, they offer nice programs for volunteers and for adults and youth. Great syrup too.
