Upcoming Events

  • Kiosk Dedication & Guided Nature Walk: Sunday, September 27th, at 10:00 AM. We will be formally dedicating the two new information kiosks at Tall Pines in a brief ceremony, and taking this opportunity to express our appreciation to Scout Noah Kizer of Mantua Troop 7083, and his Scout team, who designed and built the kiosks as Noah’s Eagle Scout project. Following the ceremony the Friends will conduct a guided nature walk in Tall Pines to view the early fall wildflowers, butterflies, birds and the many sights and sounds of nature at Tall Pines. We cordially invite our supporters and the public to attend the dedication and join in the nature walk. For the safety of all, masks are required and we will ask people to maintain safe social distancing. For those unable to attend, the dedication ceremony will be live streamed at our Facebook page.
