This Blog is dedicated to the enthusiasm surrounding the newest Frederick County Nature Center. Opened in February 2011, the center is an environmentally-friendly building situated on 139 acres along beautiful Catoctin Creek. Come visit and walk the trails, play a tune on the musical garden, enjoy the creek, explore the playground and visit the exhibits in the Nature Center.
These pictures were taken from the new "Green Roof". What you actually see is the protective white layer foundation for the soon to be "Green" roof. By this fall, students and visitors to the new nature center will be able to walk out onto and around plants on the roof top. Very Exciting!
