To Support TNC Through Our Wish List
Philips HeartStart OnSite Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
TNC's staff are trained to use an AED's and would like to obtain one so that they may have the recommended supplies to provide a safe environment for all visitors. Help keep all visitors of TNC safe!
Penny Press Machine
Visitors always ask for an inexpensive keepsake when visiting TNC. A penny press machine will provide that and help generate income for our small non-profit. Help TNC obtain a fun way for visitors to take home a piece of TNC (while still leaving no trace).
Pfister's Pond Survey
Help TNC fund a research project that will systematically measure the bathymetry (contour and depth) of Pfister’s Pond and create a 3D map in GIS (Geographic Information System).
Outdoor Classroom Design
Help fund a special project to create a community outdoor classroom. The designs will plan a designated where children of all ages and abilities play and learn by engaging with and manipulating diverse natural elements, materials, organisms, and habitats, through sensory, fine motor and gross motor experiences.
Many of our programs utilize the deck space in front of the visitor's center main entrance - apple cider making, maple sugaring and more use this space. Help TNC install an awning that will provide shade and protect visitors and students from inclement weather.
Pavilion Path Lighting
Help TNC replace and upgrade the current five lighting fixtures (bollards) which are prone to vandalism, waste energy, break easily, and require constant maintenance with LED bollards that are vandal resistant.
Pfister's Pond Species Survey
Help TNC learn more about what resides in Pfiser's Pond. This survey project will provide information as to what species may be found in the pond and will identify any invasive non-native species.
Project will include:
20-station Fit-Trail System
Help TNC add new recreation elements for all visitors to enjoy. Fitness trails combine exercises with walking or jogging to provide a well-balanced fitness routine. With exercise stations spaced along a trail, the participant proceeds from one station to the next and performs the exercises illustrated at each station. TNC would like to install a Fit-Trail system along the Bischoff Trail to promote fitness for all visitors and enable fitness-in-the-forest programs.
