What a busy early fall Saturday here at the park, even for the little critter's. Preparations for Harvest Fest were underway, friends meeting, badges acquired, wool dyed, and benefit walk.

The Friends of the Hansen Nature Center take a break to smile for the camera during their monthly meeting.

Thanks to the Boy Scouts for all their help and hard work decorating the park for the fall. They harvested the corn stalks and did lots of weeding in the amphitheater in preperation for the Harvest Fest concert.

The Benefit walk for Patty Zeiner, a Henrietta resident and avid Tinker Nature Park walker, was a HUGE success. Patty was injured in a car accident and is currently undergoing recovery.

Webelo II Cub Scouts Pack 220 from Irondequoit had a great day to earn their Nature Badge.
