Discover the Nature Center

Howard County’s Robinson Nature Center is under construction and residents are now able to catch a glimpse of the roofline when travelling along Cedar Lane, north of MD 32.  Mark Raab, Superintendent, Natural Resources Division, Howard County Recreation & Parks, will provide an overview of the project during the Village Board meeting on Monday, September 27 at 7:45 p.m. at Claret Hall (6020 Daybreak Circle).  River Hill residents are invited to attend to learn more about this LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building and the educational programs that will be available to the community.  
The Nature Center, which is expected to open in spring 2011, will house an auditorium, classrooms, a children’s discovery room, and a digital planetarium called the “Naturesphere.”  Located on 18 acres adjacent to the 1,021 acre Middle Patuxent Environmental Area, the 25,000-square-foot building will house numerous museum-quality exhibits on such topics as the Chesapeake Bay, the life of the forest, the history of Simpsonville, and the nocturnal forest.Come find out more about this new treasure rising in the Village of River Hill’s backyard and learn how you can contribute to its success.
