Tamarack Nature Center is a 320-acre park preserve located within Bald Eagle-Otter Lakes Regional Park. Woodchipped paths, paved trails and boardwalks provide year-round access. In this diverse, natural community you will find red fox, deer, woodcock and other wildlife, as well as ever-changing seasonal foliage. The floating dock serves as a scenic overlook onto Tamarack Lake, habitat for heron, turtle, mink and muskrat. The half-mile paved trail circling the restored prairie provides access to an observation deck overlooking Teal Pond.
Tamarack Nature Center offers a wide range of environmental education and outdoor recreation programs for preschool through grade 12. All classes are developed to meet the State of Minnesota Goals for Environmental Education and Graduation Standards. Reservations for organized programs should be made at least 6 weeks in advance.
In addition to school programs, Tamarack Nature Center offers outreach, day camp, birthday party, youth organization and general public programs. Volunteer opportunities are available year round for ages 11 to adult.
