Picture Perfect Day for an Egg Hunt!

The staff at Tinker Nature Park would like to thank all those involved that helped make this years egg hunt a success. This event would not be possible without the help of the Henrietta Recreation Department,  Parks Department, Senior Center and Henrietta's Youth Asset Team. From planning, set up and running the event these groups are always a pleasure to work with. Over 275 children were registered and the weather was the best we've had in recent memory for this event.
