  • Right outside of downtown Rockville is a nature preserve in Montgomery County with an amazing little nature center. This is a year-round place as the area has for four seasons and interest of flowers, plants and trees. The outside has hiking trails and gardens, there is bird feeder area for the enjoyment of any level ornithologist and a great little musical and play area for the kids. The building itself houses snakes, turtles and fish. Inside are nature learning books and toys upstairs and downstairs. There are classes for kids 18 months and up and a 2 to 5-year-olds class for a small fee. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and if they don't know the answer they will find it out for you when it comes to nature. Definitely great for preschool & elementary kids and anyone who enjoys learning more about our natural habitat.
  • Very nice place for kids, lot of toys and live animals (snakes,turtles, owl). perfect place for a cold/rainy day. Next time I will try some activities.
