FALL 2021


 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 most Wednesdays and on select days when Howard County Public Schools are closed to students. Programs will include academics, 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. Time for homework will be built into the daily schedules with assistance from our educators.

Sign up for School’s Out at The Howard County Conservancy at Mt. Pleasant in Woodstock, Maryland.
