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.
Who Lives in a Tree? This parent/child program starts next week and still has a few spaces open for 3-5 year-olds!
From nests in the branches to snug holes in the trunk, from tunnels under the bark to burrows in the roots, animals make use of trees for shelter and as a place to raise their young. Your child will learn about all the parts of the tree as well as the animals that make their homes in trees.
