Spring is in bloom, and Maymont, Richmond’s 100-acre victorian estate and gardens, has a full schedule of events for the month of March and beyond.

On March 17, Maymont will host a free screening of the Academy Award-winning documentary, My Octopus Teacher, as part of the RVA Environmental Film Festival. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Jenny Dreyer, a researcher, and curator from the Virginia Institute for Marine Science at William & Mary.

In addition to the film festival event, Maymont is offering a number of educational programs this month. Homeschool students in grades K to 7 can take classes in environmental science and history on Mondays throughout March. There will also be a Citizen Science: FrogWatch Workshop on March 7 and 9, as well as on March 28 and 30. Participants can learn to identify frogs by their sounds.

For the youngest visitors, Maymont is offering a toddler program called Down on the Farm. This popular weekly series explores the Maymont Farm and runs every Monday in March from 10 am to 11 am.

Maymont has also announced several upcoming events. During Spring Break Week, from April 3 to 7, the Robins Nature Center and Maymont Mansion will be open for four extra days. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for children, and members and Museums for All participants can enter for free with an EBT card. The grounds will be open daily with no general admission, including the Maymont Farm and wildlife habitats.

On April 8, Maymont will host the Dominion Energy Family Easter, a community event celebrating the arrival of spring. The event will run from 9 am to 3 pm. Finally, on April 29, Richmond’s favorite giant plant and garden accessories sale will take place during Herbs Galore. The event will run from 8 am to 3 pm.
