Just Another Day at the Tinker Nature Park

Spring is in the air as we pack up the snowshoes and cross country skis. The park has seen a flurry of activity. Now is the time to rent the pavilion for your event by calling 359-7042. School classes are all full, scout projects have been scheduled and the birds are letting us know they're back.

This Spring and Summer prove to be exciting as we are offering new Adult Continuing Education programs reflecting the parks mission to "Promote Nature and history through Wildlife Education and Preservation"

Stop in a take a look at all the new and exciting displays, sign up for a class or two, take a walk on the trails or tour the 19th Century Cobblestone Museum, currently decorated for a Victorian Easter, and Barns. There is something for everyone.
