Montgomery Parks offers a variety of programs and events to keep you active during the winter months. Check out our Parks Picks of the top five activities happening at our parks and nature centers:
Friday Hike it Out – Friday, February 19
Join us at Meadowside Nature Center and chill and listen to the world’s first disc jockey (DJ): nature. Hike with new friends, take care of yourself after a long week, and practice being present in nature by engaging your senses. We will notice the work and interactions of wild things on this day, in this season.
Beyond the Book: Owl Moon – Tuesday, February 23
Join us at Maydale Nature Classroom for a reading of “Owl ,” as we learn all about owls and make a craft to take home.
For the Birds: Natural Ornaments – Friday, February 24
The winter can be a hard time for birds, as they search for food. By using a few supplies at home, learn how to create natural ornaments that you hang outside to help feed the birds. A suggested list of supplies will be emailed before the program to help you prepare for this virtual program. We will use the Microsoft Teams platform for this program.
Maple Sugaring Days – Throughout the month of February
Maple Sugaring Days at Brookside Nature Center is a fun, learn-as-you-go outdoor tour about the process of making maple syrup and the science and natural science around it. Enjoy the self-guided interpretive Maple Trail walk until February 28.
