Wednesday Walk: Learning the Land!

We will take a walk through the Cylburn grounds to learn about Cylburn, past and present, led by Cylburn expert and former Baltimore City Naturalist Glenda Weber. This walk will take place on the Winter Solstice, which is a great time to be able to see features of the land otherwise covered in foliage.

Attendees should meet at the Vollmer Center at noon.
