Black Hill Visitor Center, located in Boyds, Maryland, is the home of Black Hill Nature Programs. The center sits atop a hill overlooking Little Seneca Lake in the 2,000+ acre Black Hill Regional Park and is home to Black Hill Nature Programs. The center is surrounded by a pond, beautiful gardens and our "Outdoor Classrooms" for public enjoyment. Park naturalists have explored the area in and around the lake, and have incorporated the best the region has to offer into a wide range of programs for all ages, in all seasons.
