If you ordered ceramic turtles from Nolde Pottery they are ready to go! You will get a call from the park secretary or Nolde Pottery to let you know they are ready for pickup. And thank you for supporting the Friends of Nolde Forest!
Check out the additions to the FAQ page for details on metal detecting, ice skating, and flying drones in the park.
Word came from DCNR of the cancellation of ALL in-person events - staffed and volunteer - beginning on December 6 (Sunday) until further notice as a result of spiking COVID numbers. This does include all First Day Hikes.

Good day everyone! The Friends of Nolde Forest are putting out a request for ornaments to decorate this year's tree in the mansion. The History Committee is requesting Shiny Brite or similar ornaments. These are classic glass ornaments, also known as kugels (a German word meaning "sphere), identified most easily by their textured silver cap and colorful patterns.
If you or someone you know has a few extra gathering dust in the attic or basement, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
