Tours depart at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. In mid-May, weekday tours will be added. Admission is $24 for adults, $14 for ages 3-12, free for ages 2 and younger and $23 for seniors and military.

Stream cleaning

There's water, water everywhere in Maryland, but many area waterways suffer from litter and pollution. Volunteers of all ages can pitch in this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Project Clean Stream's annual effort to remove trash, tires and other discarded items from more than 100 sites in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Cecil, Harford and Howard counties.

To find specific cleanup sites in your area, to suggest or offer to manage a site, or if you are able to provide a pickup truck to haul trash, call program assistant Kate Dowling at 410-377-6270 or visit
