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!

Irvine is open to individuals and families, free of charge, seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, year round.  Groups of 10 or more are asked to pay a small fee to offset the cost of maintaining Irvine’s grounds and facilities.

If you have a group and would like to visit, please contact Tara Lilley at 443-738-9211 or LilleyT@ExploreNature.org to schedule your visit in advance.
