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.
Mother Nature decided to give us a bountiful spring and the garlic mustard and clever decided that the newly formed trails would be perfect for them. But thanks to the help of Frederick Christian Academy and their extremely efficient mulching skills, the paths will only be growing memories. We encourage you to come out and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
