Robinson Nature Center is a little piece of beauty and serenity in Columbia. Tucked away on 18 acres of land, Robinson Nature Center is a fun and educational spot to bring kids to learn more about the flora and fauna of the region.
The building itself is environmentally friendly and LEED certified for its green design, and boasts over 420 programs a year for group trips, parties, and home school excursions. After learning a bit at the Center, enjoy the surrounding trails and wildlife, or take a walk down to the nearby Middle Patuxent River. Parking is plentiful at the Center, and the staff is welcoming and friendly. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages three to 17 (children under 3 are free). The Center is closed Monday and Tuesdays, and groups must be booked in advance. Annual passes are also available.
