Trout Lake Nature Center Board of Directors

As with most non-profits, Trout Lake Nature Center’s Board of Directors consists of volunteers. These volunteers serve in many capacities working to improve the facilities, programming, fundraising and financial health of Trout Lake Nature Center.

The Board usually meets  on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 2:00 PM and its meetings are open to the public.
