For over 20 years Peter Tilgner has volunteered his time, weekly, to help maintain the trails at Tenafly Nature Center. Over the years he has spent thousands of hours helping teach others how to care for our 7+ miles of trails and assisting our staff, eagle scouts and other volunteers when storms have caused damage to the preserve, bridges, boardwalks, and other outdoor elements. Additionaly, Peter has also generously supported the nature center financially and in doing so has helped TNC's education programs flourish and grow.
Peter’s expertise isn’t lavished solely on TNC; as an active member of the NY–NJ Trail Conference, he’s helped with many a bridge and trail project in both states. Next time you’re enjoying some of the more than seven miles of trails here, thank Peter Tilgner!
