Over 60 Years of Community Service 

Thank you to those who helped TNC celebrate gratitude at the 2022 Annual Dinner

We thank everyone who joined us 
at the Knickerbocker Country Club
for this one of a kind exclusive outdoor event!


Peter Tilgner

For over 20 years Peter Tilgner has volunteered his time, weekly, to help maintain the trails at Tenafly Nature Center. Over the years he has spent thousands of hours helping teach others how to care for our 7+ miles of trails and assisting our staff, eagle scouts and other volunteers when storms have caused damage to the preserve, bridges, boardwalks, and other outdoor elements. Additionaly, Peter has also generously supported the nature center financially and in doing so has helped TNC's education programs flourish and grow.

Peter’s expertise isn’t lavished solely on TNC; as an active member of the NY–NJ Trail Conference, he’s helped with many a bridge and trail project in both states. Next time you’re enjoying some of the more than seven miles of trails here, thank Peter Tilgner!

With the attire set as “hiking chic”, guests arrived ready to enjoy the beautiful weather, delicious food, and a magical night beneath the light of the full moon. To make it a fun evening outside, featured entertainer and NJ Magician Scott Drukker (GREAT SCOTT!) performed a fun and colorful magic show featuring his blue-and-gold macaw.

The event was a great success, attracting supporters to bid on a variety of silent auction items while enjoying cocktails. The evening served as a lovely way for us to celebrate our hardworking staff, volunteers, supporters, and to honor Peter Tilgner, a true community supporter and friend of our trails for his over 20 years of dedicated service and support.

This night would not have been possible without our attendees and supporters who believe in our mission.

Thanks also to our hardworking Dinner Committee and to TNC’s Board of Trustees, for their ongoing dedication and support.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the evening's celebration
