Coleman Ave. construction ahoy!

Tanglewood news July 25 2019

The base of Coleman Ave. where it meets Rt. 352/West Church St. in Elmira will be CLOSED beginning Monday July 29th. Give yourself an extra minute or two in case you need an alternate route up the hill to hike or visit us for a program! 

Upcoming events:

Summer Drop-in Program: Bugs and Butterflies! Monday, Aug. 5, from 10-11 a.m. Meet some of our friendly arthropod ambassadors, and learn what makes them unique! Take nets and jars out to the field to catch and identify native insects. This program is designed for elementary school children, and parents/guardians are required to stay with the kids for the duration of the program. $7 per family non-members, $5 per family for members of Tanglewood. Pay at the door (cash preferred).

  • Aug. 5 - "Fur and Fangs"
  • Aug. 19 - "Feathered Dinosaurs"

Meteors & Moonshine. Friday August 16th, 8pm-9pm. Raise your glass... and your eyes to the sky! We're pairing the Perseid meteor shower with some local moonshine samples from Four Fights Distilling! Learn about meteors and other seasonal sky activity to keep an eye out for. This event is 21+.  $8 for members of Tanglewood, $13 for non-members. Online pre-registration is required.

Purchase tickets to the Dick's Open and raise money for Tanglewood! If you enjoy golf or Keith Urban, you can purchase tickets for the Dick's Open this August - and they will donate your ticket purchase right back to us. The tickets are good for the entire week of golf (Monday, Aug. 12 - Sunday, Aug. 18) and include the Friday night Keith Urban concert. Call us or visit the nature center to purchase - $75 each. Thanks for your support! 


Hike, Learn, and Play! Bring your little ones (infants through preschoolers) up to Tanglewood for playtime outside in the sunshine! This free family program will keep your kids learning and growing all spring and summer long - Fridays at 10 a.m., April through October. (Note: HLP will be canceled Aug. 23 and 30, because staff will be teaching summer camp those weeks!) 

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!
