Friends of Tinker Nature Park

The Friends of Tinker Nature Park/Hansen Nature Center is a not-for-profit support group. They assist staff in attaining the goals of the Park and Nature Center. In 2017 our Friend's Group added a Kalamazoo Kind Carriage to the Tinker Homestead's Collection. Previous years generous support allowed the Nature Center to add a bird identification station for public use and a collection of New York State bird's eggs. The Friends of TNP/HNC also sponsor several educational events including but not limited to Nature Camp, Earth Day, Harvest Festival, Halloween and our annual Holiday Celebration.


As a friend you are entitled to:

  1. Attend and participate in Friends' meetings and special events
  2. Serve on the Friends' board,
  3. Receive a discount on honey and
  4. Free snowshoe rentals.
