Environmental Learning and Stewardship in Howard County, MD

Notice: Oct 15, 2020


Due to the continuing risks posed by COVID-19, we will not hold in-person HoLLIE classes in Feb-March  2021.  

We are working on an idea for online classes that will serve as an introduction for new students and an update for past participants.

If you would like to be notified when registration is available for the special 2021 virtual program, send email to hocollie@gmail.com with your name and mention that you want to be notified when plans are finalized for 2021. 

Congratulations to our 2019 HoLLIE Graduates!!
