We deliver environmental education programs for students of all ages. School field trips, outreach programs, and summer nature camp all nurture connections to Baltimore's abundant nature.

Hands-on programs of all kinds are available to children, adults, and families as we explore the weird and wonderful aspects of nature. Hit the trails, meet animals from our live animal collection, and discover the treasures in Baltimore's backyard. 

The pilot site for Wild Haven forest immersion programs is in beautiful Gwynns Falls Leakin Park! This immersive early learning program for 3-5 year-old children offers natural, playful learning September through May. More BCRP locations are on the way!
