Natural Resources

Discovering and appreciating nature in the Patapsco Valley has never been easier.

Bald eagles have returned and recent efforts to restore the river to its natural course are having a positive impact on the health of its aquatic life.

Activities such as trout fishing are back on schedule and the Banneker Planetarium is once again enabling visitors to explore the wonders of the galaxy.

Appreciation and insight into this delicate ecosystem are featured at the Howard County Conservancy where educational programs are offered throughout the year.

Patapsco Heritage Greenway is continuing to rally volunteers into removing trash, reporting invasive species and planting trees. Get your hands dirty and join us for an upcoming event. Better yet, become a member of the organization to help preserve and protect the Valley.

See below for just some of the natural resources that the Patapsco Valley and its surrounding areas have to offer for visitors.
