Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Here are some fantastic views of Catoctin Creek Park during the snow. Hopefully we'll get a few more feet, which will be great for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and tracking wildlife!






















Feeling Green for the Holidays

The green roof has been creeping along and growing very nicely. Here are some recent photos that truly highlight the beauty of these plants just in time for the holiday season.

It's beginning to look a lot like a Nature Center...

Here are some updated photos of just a portion of the playground area. Additional play structures will include bouldering rocks and rope bridge connecting. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to explore this fantastic play setting!
