Our natural world is rapidly losing its diversity and abundance. To slow this loss, and to better appreciate the natural world, we must begin with local nature. Potomac's Adventure Nature Center works to bring the natural world to kids, families, and armchair, amateur, and professional naturalists. We work to help develop an appreciation of our local natural world, and to improve our understanding of plants and animals in their place, beginning in our own backyard.
This web site will provide the latest news about the Adventure Nature Center, which has not yet officially launched. Use this site to learn how to volunteer and how to donate to help get us off the ground. We'll be bigger and better soon!
We are working to become a proper home base for Naturalists, both amateur and professional.
This site supports the Adventure Nature Center in Potomac, MD. We are partners with ZipcodeZoo.com, home to web pages describing 2,646,557 plants and animals, and to PotomacWildlife.org, which focuses on wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and release.
AdventureNatureCenter.org is the web site of the Adventure Nature Center. At the Center, we will offer a variety of workshops and courses, and can deliver them to your organization or school. Offerings will include programs on raptors, on reptiles, and on insects; courses in nature photography, identification of wildlife tracks, plant identification, bird behavior, invasive species, and more. We haven't moved in to our new home yet, but when we do, you'll hear about it here.
