On a drive along Cromwell Bridge Road east of Towson, you'll notice a classic white barn surrounded by a stretch of wooden fencing. Follow the entry drive at Cromwell Valley Park and you'll encounter a modest green sign marked Talmar. Talmar stands for Therapeutic Alternatives of Maryland. It's a nonprofit therapy center where participants get their hands a little dirty during a day's work. Its home is a handful of acres containing rows of flower beds and greenhouses and a 50-hen chicken coop.

Walking through Cromwell Valley Park, one would scarcely think that the slight trickle of water running through the middle of the site could require a $4 million repair job. But park manager Leo Rebetsky says this tiny stream, known as Minebank Run, could eventually pose a problem not just for those who enjoy the park, but for the Chesapeake Bay. Minebank Run begins just inside the Beltway, between Joppa and Cromwell Bridge roads. It continues behind Loch Raven High School on Cowpens Avenue, running through Cromwell Valley Park and eventually flowing into Gunpowder Falls.

A squat, stone building kept dairy products cool. A wooden structure shaped like an upside-down "V" stored ears of corn. The loft of a whitewashed barn was packed with bales of hay for horses to eat in the winter. These structures and seven other historical agricultural buildings were almost lost - twice. But today Baltimore County officials will celebrate the completion of a project to restore 10 buildings at Cromwell Valley Park. More than a decade ago, community members teamed with the county and state to preserve the farms on which these buildings stand from developers.

The expansive lawn in front of the Sherwood Farm mansion at Cromwell Valley Park is usually deserted in March, although sometimes a cardinal or other winged visitors perch in shrubbery. That will change Saturday morning, March 30, when hundreds of children descend on the grounds for the 18th annual Easter egg hunt, seeking candy-filled plastic eggs or to show off paper-plate Easter bonnets they have made Youngsters and adults will also admire rabbits brought by 4-H Club members, dye hard-boiled eggs, greet the Easter Bunny and more.

The Cromwell Valley Park Council has begun development of the "Nature Trail for All," a scenic and educational trail that will be accessible to people of varying physical and intellectual limitations. "There are very few places where someone with limited mobility can be around nature," said Alan Lake, chair of the buildings and grounds committee for the park council. "Right now, the park is a series of hills. There are 16 miles of trails, but little of it is accessible to people with various limitations," he said.

The 93rd Flowermart might have seniority, but it's far from the only place where you can buy flowers and other plants this weekend — and we're not talking about the neighborhood grocery, hardware or department store. We're talking about special events where horticulture and green-thumbery reign. Here are three possibilities: Historic Annapolis Maybe you've been to Annapolis' historic William Paca House, home to both a signer of the Declaration of Independence and one of the area's most fabulously ornate gardens?

He's Ernie Tyler -- as familiar a sight at Oriole home games as the Bird. He'll be discussing his career as the Orioles' umpire attendant and ball man on Saturday at the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum, in the program "Ernie Tyler -- The Man Behind the Umpires." Tyler will speak about his pre-game rituals, his family's involvement with the Orioles franchise and how he's kept his streak of 3,212 straight home games alive.

You don't want your child to be the kid who comes home with no treats after an egg hunt. These events can be overwhelming for little ones, so for some hints on how to have a successful hunt, we turned to the experts. Kriste Garman , park naturalist at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center and former organizer of the Easter egg hunts at Cromwell Valley Park, said: •Look under leaves. •Eggs are often out in the open, but camouflaged, so if you see a yellow flower, look for a yellow egg. •Make sure you have a good, sturdy collection container, so you're not worried about the bottom falling out of your bag. Nikki Haschert , program specialist for the City of Westminster Recreation and Parks Department, said: •Don't just look on the ground, look everywhere.
