Located just northwest of Baltimore, Irvine Nature Center is a leading environmental education center with 80,000 visitors a year. Our green building and 210 acres of forests, meadows and wetlands are perfect for students, families and nature-lovers. We look forward to exploring nature with you!

Beginning September 1st through October 14th, our trails will be closed to the public on Fridays after 1:00PM.

Our center will still remain open during these times.
