About this event


Join us at the Robinson Nature Center for our Sr. Naturalist program! The program provides a foundation of understanding on a variety of topics through hands-on exploration and demonstrations in a casual, social atmosphere.

Forest Bathing: Enjoy the experience of shinrin yoku (forest bathing). You will take a slow, mindful walk led by Certified Forest Bathing Instructor Monica Wenzel, in which you experience the forest with all your senses.

Geology: Discover the unique rock formations and types that you find in this region of Maryland with expert guide, Terry Cordaro.

History Hike: Discover the native cultures, historical settlers of Simpsonville and individuals that lived on the property where the Nature Center now sits through a hike along the property to the Simpsonville mill ruins and a presentation of artifacts by Robinson Nature Center staff.

Winter Birding: Search for birds along the nature center’s trails using auditory and visual clues while learning how to recognize the differences between species with Robinson Nature Center staff.
