ASCM Nature Walks

You Are HereNature Walks
  We have a variety of Nature Walks planned for the coming months. You're sure to find one or more to fit your interests and schedule.

These walks are designed to introduce you to the great resources of our two Audubon Sanctuaries, near the towns of Mount Airy and New Market, Maryland.

We welcome and encourage the participation of anyone who is interested in exploring and learning more about nature.

All of our walks are free, and appropriate for your entire family.

The Nature Walks will be held on the 3rd Saturday of the month, starting at 9:00 AM (unless otherwise noted), and lasting about two hours.

Always be sure to check our
News! page for the latest details and updates.

We always hope for sunshine and mild temperatures, but please note that a walk may be cancelled in case of severe weather conditions.

(Note that limited restroom facilities are only available at the ACAS sanctuary, and only during the warmer months.)

Scroll through the list below to see what's planned. We've kept a few listings of past walks, so you can view photos and reports that participants submitted, and get a feel for what's in store when YOU come out!
