Programs and Events

The Center sponsors public programs throughout the year including pontoon boat rides, canoe and kayak trips, children's programs, nature walks, summer camps, and lots more! Most programs are by registration only; however, we do offer a series of free drop-in programs that require no registration, such as Critter Dinner Time, Meet a Critter and Nature Tales. Programs are designed for families and the general public. For group program registration, call or email Lauren Greoski, Park Naturalist, at lmgreoski@harfordcountymd.gov.

Check out our quarterly Winter Calendar of Events for a listing of all our fabulously fun environmental education programs.  Pick up a copy at the Center or sign up on our free eCALENDAR (at the bottom of every page) to have one sent right to you.
