Listed below are current TNC events. We are in the process of working on adding more events, so please check back regularly! If you want to see all events in a calendar view, you can check out our Event Calendar and an event board can also be found in Second Life at The Nature Collective location outside of the park office.

BOOK CLUB | once a month, on Saturdays
Join us every month for The Nature Collective (TNC) Book Club as we discuss our current book club selection and choose our book for the next month! Book Club meetings are held at participating TNC member locations – usually on a Saturday at 12 noon SLT.

COFFEE COLLECTIVE | 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month
Are you looking for chill vibes, smooth brews, and some social interaction? Then Coffee Collective is for you! Chat, play games or AFK while you work. This is totally informal and just for fun! Locations are announced the day of the event – on Discord and in the SL group.

SHUTTERBUG CLUB | the last Monday of every month
Join us as we travel to one chosen Nature Collective location each month and spend an hour exploring and taking photos of that adventure’s location. Participants are encouraged to take raw and unprocessed (in-viewer filters only – no Photoshop) snapshots and submit them to our Shutterbug Flickr group. (Photos must be received by the end of the day of that particular location). Be part of a year long scrapbook-style series of photographic encounters in the wild, brought to you by The Nature Collective!

RAILS, TRAILS & SAILS | the last Saturday of every month (currently on hold)
The Nature Collective has partnered with the Mainland Community Alliance for Rails, Trails, and Sails! This event program takes explorers on tours by rail, on one of the many great lines traversing the grid, on horseback, bike, or foot along trails through Mainland and various TNC member locations and through SL’s amazing waterways.
