Giving Tuesday Benny Beaver for donation

Donations are always appreciated. During the Covid-19 Pandemic CCM has been challenged to serve our members while practicing Social Distancing guidelines. 

We have ramped up our online game and use kits to get materials to children through their school as well as through food giveaway sites. 

Emergency grants have been our main source of income since April.


Here's where you can help while visits and membership fees are at a standstill.


Current funding needs:

  • Welcome Way Help to match a $40,000 grant from Maryland Heritage Areas Authority to make CCM’s parking lot safer for children and more eco-friendly. We're halfway there!

  • Outdoor Play Additions to the park to encourage nature play for visitors of all ages- a hillside slide, replacements for steps on the nature trail, a pair of parabolic whisper dishes.  .  . 

  • At Home Today Virtual field trips for students who are schooling from home - in Spanish and English. Online programming for Girl Scout badge workshops, parenting classes, Story Times  .  .  .

  • A Productive Delay Exhibit enhancements and facilities upkeep projects are being tackled while the museum is closed to visitors. Culture Carriers and Pandemics Past and Present await you!
