Oregon Ridge Nature Center & Park



Each year the ORNC Council awards scholarships to college-bound high school seniors from Baltimore County and City.  Recipients should show a high level of commitment to the health of the environment and plan to continue their studies in environmental science and nature education.

This year our goal is to support at least two scholarships up to $3,000 each!

We hope you will help by giving generously to the Scholarship Fund. To make a tax-deductible donation, checks should be made payable to the ORNC Council, specifying on the note line “Scholarship Fund” and sent to:

Oregon Ridge Nature Center Council
13555 Beaver Dam Road
Cockeysville, MD  21030

The names of all donors will be published, so if you would like to make a gift in another’s name, please specify the donor’s name as it should appear on the list.

If you know a high school senior who may be eligible for the scholarship, please have the student call the Oregon Ridge Nature Center for an application form at 410-887-1815 or download an application here.


Applications should be postmarked no later than the last Friday April 1st.

Thank You for Helping Us Educate Future Environmentalists!
