Experience God's wonderous gifts of nature...    
               the stream, the hills, the fields, the flora and the fauna...

BeeTree Preserve is 263 beautiful acres of forests, fields, streams and wetlands located just 25 miles north of Towson in northern Baltimore County.  Acquired by a group of generous and forward-thinking families, the eight parcels of land that became BeeTree Preserve were donated to Towson Presbyterian Church in 1965.  Named for Beetree Run, a trout stream that meanders through the property, BeeTree Preserve's natural beauty and resources have welcomed visitors and inhabitants — both animal and human — for hundreds of years.

Come and see — and enjoy— for yourself!  BeeTree Preserve not only offers miles of scenic trails for your use but many other facilities as well.  Two open air pavilions (one with a fireplace), men's and women's restrooms, a large play field, and Adirondack shelters for camping are available for church, scout, school, business or family gatherings.  Additional facilities are planned to make your visit to BeeTree Preserve as comfortable and delightful as possible.








The BeeTree Preservation Committee encourages the responsible use of the trails and facilities at BeeTree.  Bring your family and friends for picnicking, hiking, bird watching, or other outdoor activities. Invite your children to attend the very popular Camp BeeTree summer day camp.  Boy and Girl Scout groups have discovered the wonderful facilities at BeeTree and many weekends find more than one group using the property for overnight camping — it's a great stop over point on a hiking/ biking trip on the Torrey C. Brown trail or as a destination unto itself.  Horseback riding clubs use the trails, as do day hikers and nature lovers. 

The BeeTree Preserve also includes the BeeTree Cemetery.
