Great place for kids and families to spend an afternoon hiking on the trails, taking in the exhibits or attending one of many learning opportunities offered by Irvine.

A nice quite, informative place. Many hikes from here. A small visitor center has displays of animals and other science telated things. I would say great place to go with kids upto middle school. I believe they also do events in nature. They also sell plants in limited quantity.

Looking to get out into nature but are too lazy to go on a real hike, Irvine is the place for you.

Besides the really nice nature center Irvine it crisscrossed with trails that are perfect for an hour or 2 in nature.

Cub Scouts, families with young children, perfect. Trails are well groomed and short.

Ample parking and a lovely staff also helps to make Irvine a great place for parties.

I have gone with both family young and old as well as old relationships. The trails are beautiful in the summer and it's a great atmosphere for the kids. I missed seeing the butterfly exhibit and I hope it's back this summer.

I signed up for a beekeeping course to learn how to properly keep bees in my backyard. The instructor was a master beekeeping (one of the few in the U.S.) and he gave instructional and practical applications. There are several hives on the nature center's property and we were able to be hands-on with the bees. This was great and the information was excellent. Of course, most of your experience comes from having your own bees, but this is an excellent start.

This environmental center is manned by helpful, friendly staff but we arrived for a class with a toddler and found the website was not updated and the class had been cancelled. But the center offered turtles, birds, and bees for our little one to experience. The play area could be spruced up but I imagine our experience will be totally different in better weather when we could go outside on the property. We will plan to give it another try in the future. And you must keep in mind that it's free which is great no matter what.

This is a nature center in Baltimore County that is an ideal place to take the family. It has many exhibits and animals sure to fascinate anyone with a curiosity. The grounds are certainly worth a look as is the center.

We live close by so we make a point of visiting Irvine as often as we can. The nature center is very well done. It has a nice mix of interactive activities, as well as live animals for the kids (and parents!) to check out.

They have a beautiful natural playground in the back and lots of great hiking trails through the local woods and fields.

Irvine offers lots of classes and activities for kids and adults. I recently took a beekeeping class here that was very nicely done. Both my kids have attended birthday parties here as well with live animals.

It's a great place to visit and to support by becoming a member!
