Shop our annual, outdoor native plant sale! Select from a large variety of shrubs, wildflowers, ground covers, trees, and edible native plants. Native plants are more tolerant to local climate, pest species and soil nutrients and require less water, fertilizer and pesticides while providing food and habitat for local species of butterflies, insects and birds. Vendors support Robinson Nature Center through donations.

2023 Parking Information:

In the event that our parking lot fills, we have secured off-site parking thanks to the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics lab at 11100 Johns Hopkins Road. To inquire about parking availability at the nature center before your arrival, please call 410-313-0400.


We will be running shuttles to and from the off-site parking. Plant purchases will be moved with the assistance of volunteers to the Nature Center front circle, where guests may load their car after returning from off-site parking.
