February News and Events from Tanglewood Nature Center & Museum

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Our Red, Blue, and Yellow trails remain closed until further notice, to prevent them from getting further damage. We appreciate your cooperation in hiking the Orange, Green, and Pink trails (and Children's Trail) for now! 

We will be starting monthly trail work volunteer dates in March. If you're interested in joining, please email our volunteer coordinator and Bridget will add you to the email list! 

Upcoming events:
SOLD OUT. Cabin Fever. Saturday February 2nd from 10am-12pm. Reminder for those of you who signed up before it sold out! Pancake breakfast served from 10-10:45am, hike to follow at 10:45am. Unless we get a whole bunch of fresh powder, the hike will just be in regular hiking boots - this crispy short layer of snow isn't good snowshoeing. Warm up with hot cocoa and a cozy animal show by the fireplace at 11:30am! 

*Members Only* Annual Meeting. Saturday February 9th from 1pm-3pm. Sheryl Robinson speaks on “Indigenous Connections - Spirituality, Stewardship & Culture”. Executive Director Elaine Spacher shares the accomplishments in 2018 and what's coming in 2019 for the organization; Morse-Lynn-Brooks volunteer of the year honored. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks included - suggested donation of $10 at the door. 

SOLD OUT. Owl Walk. Saturday February 16th from 6pm-7pm. Join Brie for a night hike to call in some of our wild owls. She’ll begin the evening with some info about owl habitats, adaptations, and behavior—then hit the trail! BYO headlamp/flashlight.
Reptiles & Amphibians free family program. Saturday March 23rd from 11am-12pm. Join Jamie in the auditorium for a celebration of our coolest, cold-blooded critters - frogs and toads, lizards and turtles, all of our favorites. Explore eggs and adaptations and touch a turtle's shell! Free, all ages welcome.

Ongoing:
Winter Wiggles! Ian is revamping this classic program - we're keeping the storybook and animal pairing, but expect new crafts, games, and learning Wednesday mornings at 10am :)
Hike, Learn, and Play! HLP will return in the spring for the April-October 2019 season!

We have local delicious honey made by our beekeeper's bees - swing by the nature center to take some home! Want more birdsong in your life? We have feeders, houses, and even some sweet stuffed Audubon birds to cuddle with when it's rainy outside. Stop by the Nuthatch Gift Shop today to explore! 

And if you're a member, remember that you get a 20% discount!

Reminder! Dogs are allowed at Personius Woods, but NOT on the trails by the nature center. We are preserving ground-nesting bird habitats and appreciate your cooperation. We encourage you to hike with your dogs along the streams, fields, and forests at Personius.
