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.
Bring your children to the nature center at Catoctin Creek or Fountain Rock so you will have free time to prepare for the holidays! Children will meet the resident critters up close and personal. They will enjoy nature programs, games, and crafts. Bring a bag lunch!
These programs are designed for little nature lovers! Your child will learn about the natural world through stories, live animals, nature walks, hands-on crafts, and games. Dress appropriately for outdoor activities.
Soap-making is an ancient art that allows you to pamper yourself using flowers and herbs, and other goodies from Mother Nature. Treat yourself or a friend for the holidays. Learn how to make all natural herbal soaps and make and take some home with you. $5 material fee due at first class.
