What We Do

Environmental Education

We provide high quality environmental education to over 5,000 Cecil County Public School elementary students.  In addition we serve home schools, private schools and daycares.  Our curriculums include ecosystems, water quality, watersheds, soil science, and food chains.  Children also get to meet and learn about our animal ambassadors Jake, Kai, Axel, Ruby, Spot and Bernate!

Boy Scouts

We are the very proud host of Boy Scout Troop 302.  They meet at the Nature Center and have provided a tremendous amount of service hours and capital improvements to our facility over the years.

Envirothon

Each year we host Cecil County high school students in grades 9-12 competing in the Envirothon.  This state-wide competition provides a fun and exciting way to learn about the natural world around them.  Topics include forestry, soils, aquatics, wildlife and a 5th rotating current environmental topic.
