MPNC School, Group, and Outreach Programs

As part of the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks, Marshy Point Nature Center and its staff provide school and group programming with the MPNC Nature Council’s support.

Marshy Point is a great choice for school and community groups looking for nature‐oriented, hands‐on field trips and programs in the Greater Baltimore area. From Pre‐K to adult, we tailor each trip to suit your needs, providing diverse learning and outdoor opportunities for all ages, needs, and backgrounds. Program offerings are listed on the MPNC Program Request Form.

Scheduling Information

We cannot schedule outreach programs for locations outside of Baltimore County. Available dates fill up quickly; please fill out and submit your form as soon as you know your preferred date(s). You may stop in or call ahead of time to see if your intended date is available, but this does NOT guarantee a program reservation. We do not take reservations without a completed program request form and full payment; we make reservations based on the date/time forms are received.

Preferred dates are not guaranteed; scheduling is based on our staff availability and number of other previously scheduled programs. If your intended date is unavailable, we will work with you to find another suitable date, if possible.
