Financial Year Accomplishments

The Society has seen tremendous growth across all program areas and performed diligently in financial stewardship since its founding in 2011.  The Society served more than 31,000 individuals attending programs and visitors enjoying the beauty of the preserve during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, an increase of 16% over the previous year.  The organization:

  • Conducted 112 school field trips/school outreach/organized group programs.  These programs served a total of  6,387 students and Scouts who were provided with hands-on experience in nature. 
  • Conducted 319 public programs and events for children, adults and miscellaneous groups at the nature center.  These programs served 7,591 individuals (ages two years old through senior adult) with age-appropriate programs and activities designed to enhance learning in a natural environment.  
  • Maintained a dedicated corps of 225 individuals who volunteered an amazing 4,833 hours in support of TNS programs, activities and initiatives.  Comprising 98% of our work force, these devoted volunteers donated time and effort to help with such activities as: educational program assistance; trail maintenance and clean-up projects; the annual Maple Syrup event; fundraising events, blue bird monitoring; front desk reception and administrative support.
