Sherwood Gardens


The Y in Central Maryland and the Baltimore School of Music are joining the Guilford Association for its Family Day at Sherwood Gardens on Saturday, September 16.

The event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. with a classical music concert featuring faculty from the Baltimore School of Music. Following the concert, guests are invited to enjoy nature-based activities led by Rangers from the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge, explore Sherwood Gardens on a tour led by Master Gardeners and learn about the garden’s design, history and plants. Older children can participate in the Sherwood Gardens Junior Ranger program by completing a landscape architect activity guide, and younger children can create bird feeders.

At 12:00 p.m., an award ceremony will begin for Project Olmsted, a summer-long exhibition of flower beds designed in the tradition of the esteemed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Y Achievers are among the groups that designed and planted flower beds, and they are eligible for awards.
