Tamarack Nature Center is a 320-acre park preserve located within Bald Eagle-Otter Lakes Regional Park in White Bear Township, MN, about 20 minutes from downtown St. Paul. Over four miles of woodchipped paths, paved trails and boardwalks provide year-round access to a diverse, natural community that includes red fox, deer, woodcock and other wildlife, as well as ever-changing seasonal foliage. A special dock serves as a scenic overlook onto Tamarack Lake, habitat for heron, turtle, mink and muskrat. The half-mile paved trail circling the restored prairie provides access to the George Mack observation deck overlooking Teal Pond.
