What We Offer

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is committed to enhancing the natural resources stewardship ethic of all Maryland citizens. That is why we offer a variety of services for K-12 students, teachers, and other Maryland residents:

  • ​Our professional development opportunities for teachers provide them with cutting-edge scientific information and teacher-tested lesson plans.
  • Many of the educator materials and services are free or low-cost.
  • Educational literature and workshops for adults help all Maryland citizens improve the environment in which they live.
  • Our summer camps and special events teach youth about the environment and what they can do to protect it.
