Welcome visitors,

We now have a convenient drop-box for admission, if you arrive before or after our normal hours to hike our trails (see pricing to the left).

No pets are allowed – they scare our wildlife!

Remember, there is no picking or collecting and it is important to remain on the trails!

Thank you!

Polymer Clay Jewelry

by Lilian Nichols

The artist of the month is Lilian Nichols, who works with polymer clay to make all sorts of jewelry - earrings, necklaces and other items.  For her, polymer clay is like

three dimensional paints – a perfect combination of her first two loves – painting and ceramics.  Always a nature lover, her art is inspired by colors, forms and patterns found in the natural world, sometimes with a touch of whimsy.  She has been working in polymer clay for about thirty years, and also teaches, spreading the fun!

Jewelry prices range from $15 – $45

A percentage of all sales will be donated back to BNC!
