Rescheduling and Cancellations

Dates & Times
Education programs are available Wednesdays through Sundays.
Most tours begin at either 9:30 am or 10:00 am, but other start times can be accommodated. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before your program begins. This will ensure enough time for you to check in and for your students to get settled in before the tour.
Full Day Early Maryland Program – 3.5 hours (our most popular)
Half-Day Early Maryland Program – 2 hours
Nature Programs: 1.5 hours
We are currently able to accommodate 60 students at a time on a field trip. Once on site, groups will be divided further into 15-student groups.
Students with Special Needs
In order to make the appropriate accommodations, please inform us if you are bringing any children with special needs, as well as how we can best welcome your students.
Please bring one chaperone (including teachers) for every five students. These chaperones are included free of charge. Aides are free. Additional chaperones are requested to pay the student rate ($10 for full day/$8 for half day/$7 for nature program). We request that siblings be left at home so that chaperones can focus on assisting the children on the program.
Add-Ons: Extend Your Program
Staff Led Garden Activity:
Explore our 10 acres of wooded and ornamental gardens and one mile of walking trails, seeking examples of ways plants and animals interact in our ecosystem. 30 minutes (includes introduction and wrap-up led by our staff); $30 for 10 to 51 students, $60 for more than 51 students.
Self Guided Activity: Explore our 10 acres of wooded and ornamental gardens and one mile of walking trails, seeking examples of ways plants and animals interact in our ecosystem.
The Full Day Early Maryland Program allows 45 minutes for lunch and students are encouraged to bring bag lunches. In case of inclement weather, we have several covered pavilions.
Groups attending the Half Day Early Maryland Program or the Nature Programs may reserve a lunch space in advance. Preferential seating is given to groups who reserve a space, so we recommend reaching out if you are interested in lunching on the property.
What to Wear
Anticipate being outside most of the day; please ensure that your students dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes for standing and walking most of the day.
Field trips are held rain or shine. Teachers should encourage students to dress in sturdy shoes and bring rain gear if needed. For safety, strong winds and/or possible thunderstorms may require a substitution of alternative indoor activities. In the case of a weather emergency in which schools are closed, your field trip will be cancelled. If an alternate date is available, we reschedule the trip.
