ANNOUNCING Nature Center Events:

Hunting Island State Park offers educational programs geared toward a broad spectrum of interests and age groups, ranging from school children to senior citizen groups. As interest in the programs has grown, the demand has far outstripped the park's available manpower. Consequently, Friends of Hunting Island volunteers have been trained in program presentation and nature interpretation.
