Tendick Nature Park is a county park, located on Highway O, approximately 2 miles north of Saukville.  The park is composed of rolling farmland, part wooded, part open fields.  A single room log cabin is located on a hill approximately 700 feet west of the parking lot.

Ozaukee Master Gardeners have planted the area inside the split rail fence around the log cabin with herbs, flowers, and vegetables, similar to what might have been planted by early settlers.  Our work includes planting annuals, as well as weeding, watering, and deadheading the garden as needed.  The area beyond the fence needs to be mowed.

Future projects could include a small nature center, and/or a place where talks could be held for small groups.  The park also contains wetlands and prairies that the Ozaukee County Park Commission would like restored.
