Irivine Nature Center
Surrounded by more than 1,200 acres of protected land, Irvine Nature Center grants kids and parents access to 210 acres of open wetlands, forest, and meadows, affording families the opportunity to explore multiple ecosystems all in one afternoon. Dedicated to protecting nature and fostering respect of the outdoors, the center educates families with everything from field trips into the woods to hands-on lessons on specialized topics, from "Good Bugs for the Garden" to "Nature's Sweets: Maple Syrup & Honey." An indoor gallery sweeps adventurers through a collection of exhibits highlighting Maryland's local biomes, guiding visitors through an interactive box-turtle habitat and a darkened room echoing with the sounds of nocturnal animals such as owls and infomercial hosts.
