Educational GoalsWe aim to provide a place where children can be exposed to nature and history in Baltimore City. Our programs give kids a reason to go outside and experience nature with their families. Cylburn’s gardens, woods, and programs give children the freedom to learn through play, use their imaginations, and experience the wonder and calm of the outdoor environment.
- Engage the families of the Baltimore City Community
- Introduce children to nature through the gardens, tree collections, and woods
- Help teach children about ecology and the natural world
- Provide opportunities to play and have fun!
