4/28 – Homeschool program moved to ED Center

Homeschool: Fishing has been moved to the Education Center. We will be doing fishing activities indoors. If weather holds up we may venture outside. Please share with anyone you know who may be attending.

New Tractor

Thanks to the generosity of the Scott County Regional Authority and other private donations, Nahant was able purchase a new tractor and brush mower. We would also like to acknowledge our Friends at Sinclair Tractor, in Durant, for making this happen. The tractor is a much-needed piece of equipment that will make it easier for staff to maintain trails and fight invasive species.
