There’s no reason to travel too far for family fun this weekend! From explorations of local history to a chance to truly shop local, there’s lots to do in Southern Maryland this weekend. Here are just three events happening in the region this weekend, July 13-15, 2018.

Bond with Bugs at Sotterley’s Exploration Friday Event

Who will you find living in the gardens at Sotterley Plantation?

Find out at the plantation’s next Exploration Friday event! These weekly events feature family-friendly guided activities for all ages. On Friday, July 20, from 10 a.m. to noon, participants can hunt for bugs in the gardens of Sotterley. You’ll use magnifying glasses to get an up-close look at insects, and you’ll be able to create a mini butterfly garden planter to take home using recycled materials.

Exploration Friday events are included with plantation admission. For more information and a list of other Exploration Friday themes, visit
