Natural Area Parks and Conservation Sites

Conservation area sites and natural area parks throughout Prince George's County emphasis preserving natural resources and educating the public about wildlife and ecology.

Nature Centers and Old Maryland Farm

Hands-on exhibits, live animals, theme gardens, and a variety of interpretive programs are offered at our three nature centers. Exciting interpretive and educational programs are conducted by professional park naturalists at these sites.

The Old Maryland Farm, an educational facility within Watkins Regional Park, serves as an agricultural exhibit and livestock display area. Staff from the nature facilities works closely with conservation agencies, schools, and community groups to provide support for special events, natural area park management, and environmental education.
