    Connecting scientists, managers, educators, and the public from every county along the Patuxent River to share, learn, and be inspired.

    The Patuxent River, considered “Maryland’s River”, is the longest river entirely in the state of Maryland. Home to over 100 species of fish and a staggering variety of resident and migratory birds, the Patuxent River is a jewel of the Maryland natural world.

    Help the naturalist count milkweed plants in the meadow for the 2019 Monarch Larva Monitoring Project.  This volunteer opportunity is one of many that will be offered through October to improve conservation efforts for monarch butterflies.  Homeschool students can get involved with real science through these programs too.
