  • The sanctuary has three walking trails, ranging in distance from 1.2 to 3.0 miles. But they also have astronomy observation evenings monthly (when open) and activities for kids. Great place for either the family, a field trip, or even a solo walk!
  • Beautiful sanctuary...have never seen so many dragonflies and butterflies! Also several trails and bird watching areas available right along the Patuxent. Inside the visitor center, there are several live reptiles to see.
