A little—or a lot of—wind didn’t stop an estimated 86,000-plus people from enjoying a day of learning and discovery at Saturday’s Maryland Day, the 21st annual celebration of all things UMD.
Did you know, in April 1788 Maryland became a state? To celebrate our statehood the campus Arboretum and Botanical Garden wants to inspire Maryland pride and celebrate the Old Line State with an informative article that goes beyond listing our state symbols. We invite you to continue reading to learn more about the symbols of the state of Maryland and the efforts made on campus to celebrate our statehood and important historical figures.
Come one and all to 2019 Celebration of Maryland's Arbor Day!

Turning to hobbies can help us cope with stress, alleviate mental health issues, encourage an active lifestyle, and much more. But what if you don’t know what you'd like your hobby to be?
Have you spotted these boxes yet?
Lawnmower? Chainsaw? Incoming biplane? Space Godzilla vs. Mothra? Nope, that’s just the sound of the periodical cicada singing its little heart out. This spring, we will witness the emergence of Brood X and every tree, plant, picnic table, lawn, and flagpole in the area has the potential to be covered with these large, but unaggressive and interesting insects.
