In accordance with CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines in response to COVID-19, large scale events, as well as indoor programs and live classes, have been cancelled until further notice.  Although COVID-19 has required us to modify our operations, our mission has not changed.  Stay connected and engaged as a steward of the natural world by exploring the Connect tab on our website.  We invite you to peruse our list of virtual presentations under Adult Group Presentations as we continue to provide these programs. We will communicate changes and updates via our website and social media, so please check back frequently.

At Tyler we believe that learning about nature, and specifically learning about gardening, botany, biology, entomology, the weather, the water cycle, ecology, ornithology, and conservation are essential elements to further our understanding and comprehension of the world and our place and part in its survival.

We believe that adults and children alike thrive when learning becomes fun and when it inspires them to discover more for themselves.

Multiple examples of peer-reviewed scientific research demonstrate that time spent in nature—either walking in the woods and meadows, or by getting our hands dirty while gardening—is good for us emotionally, physiologically, physically, and biologically.

Central to Tyler’s mission of providing programs and activities that fulfill community needs for information and education about plants and nature, we support lifelong learning and offer an extensive range of fun, lively, and informative classes, lectures, tours, programs, and trips for adults, children, families, and groups.
