Trail Guides

Trail Guides are trained in fall and winter to lead visiting school children on nature hikes. If you enjoy children and nature, but missed the training, you can still volunteer. By accompanying and observing seasoned Trail Guides on hikes, you can learn everything you need to know to lead your own hike. In addition to this on-the-job training, you will be given a packet of educational material about the trails. Please call Andi Musser at 410-887-1815 to arrange for some dates to observe hikes.

Weekend Nature Programs

Naturalists lead nature hikes and other programs for individuals and families on most Saturdays and Sundays from 2-4 pm. See Calendar for dates and times. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Dress for the weather, including comfortable hiking gear.

Full Moon Hikes

Enjoy nature's "night shift" on our moonlight hikes and learn the unique lore surrounding each month's full moon. These hikes, primarily for adults and older children, are $2 (non-refundable), which is due in advance. See Calendar for dates, times and descriptions.

Scout Troops

We schedule Scout Troops on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10 am to noon. All prior listed programs are open to scout troops as well as custom programs that satisfy badge requirements. It would be helpful to our weekend naturalists if you send in a copy of the badge requirements in advance.
