Natural Resources on the Web

The Nature of Frederick County, and Maryland, and the Mid-Atlantic Region

The internet offers an incredible array of sites about the ecology and natural history of our area. We’ll use this page to share a carefully selected list of informative resources on the web that focus, entirely or in part, on the nature of Frederick County, or Maryland, or our broader region, including native plants and wildlife, geology, climate and more.

We’ll also include a separate list of such resources that are designed for younger children.

Finally, we’ll add a page of links to the diverse collection of public places you can explore in our area, including local, state and national parks, wildlife refuges, state and national forests, and private preserves that are open to the public.

Stay tuned!
