Outdoor recreation and Nature Play


Discovery Hollow and Garden

Spash in water, climb a hill or crawl through a log. Discovery Hollow and Garden at Tamarack Nature Center has hands-on activities that bring kids and nature together. 



Test your navigation skills at Tamarack Nature Center's orienteering course. Use a map and compass to find the shortest, safest route between a series of marked landscape features.  Orienteering is an adventure in nature!


Cross-Country Skiing/Snowshoeing

When snow covers the ground it's the perfect time to be active. Strap on a pair of snowshoes or skis and hit the trails. Tamarack Nature Center has 4.2k of trails that are opened sunrise to sunset.

  Note: Tamarack Nature Center trails are not open to biking, dog walking or group running activities.
