Come connect with us on a guided nature tour of The Mariners’ Park and the Noland Trail! This unique one-hour walking tour features an in-depth narrative of trees and plants, a history of the 550-acre Park and breathtaking views of the 167-acre Mariners’ Lake. Use your complimentary binoculars to get an up-close view of plant and animal life along your route.


Meet at the Museum’s Business entrance, where the guided walk begins. The tour will take less than a third of a mile (approximately 30-40 minutes) along the Noland Trail. Weekday tours are conducted by our master naturalist, while weekend tours are conducted by our manager of the Park department.

Each group is limited to a maximum of 10 people, and COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed including social distancing of six feet or more and the wearing of a face mask by all participants.
