Need a place to bring your children when schools are closed?
Bring them to The Howard County Conservancy for our School’s Out Nature Program! These educational programs are held on select days when Howard County Public Schools are closed to students. Programs will include educational games, activities, and crafts emphasizing all the wonders of the natural world. Children will discover and explore the variety of natural habitats as life flourishes all around them.
TWO LOCATIONS AVAILABLE! Sign up for School’s Out at The Howard County Conservancy at Mt. Pleasant in Woodstock, Maryland or The Howard County Conservancy at Belmont Manor and Historical Park in Elkridge, Maryland.
