Discover ice art at the Irvine Nature Center

The winter season once again returns to Baltimore bringing frigid temperatures. The colorful autumn leaves have gone leaving bare trees. All life has gone silent as creatures enjoy their winter slumber. It feels less somber when the white snow arrives creating a magical winter fairy world. Irvine Nature Center offers many fun indoor activities during the winter celebrating the season (they offer outdoor fun, too!).
