Tanglewood news Aug 22 2019

It's newsletter time! If you'd like to volunteer to spend a few minutes folding newsletters, sticking address labels on, and maybe even the exciting task of sorting by zipcode for bulk mail, we would be so grateful for your help! This is our Sep-Dec edition so you get a sneak peak at our fall events.

Folding and stickering party: Saturday 8/24 from 10am-12pm, auditorium. 

Upcoming events:

No Hike Learn and Play tomorrow Friday the 23rd, because Jamie's teaching camp... but! Take your young ones to another free nature walk at Sperr Park! Ian will be leading a Nature Strollers walk at Sperr Park from 10-11am. Free family program. 

Honeybee Celebration with beekeeper Elaine! Saturday September 14, 1-2:30pm. September is honeybee month so it’s the perfect time to spend a few hours at Tanglewood learning about honeybees! There will be a lecture, beekeeping tips, a visit to Tanglewood’s observation hive, honey tastings and free recipes to help you cook with honey. Appropriate for children ages 5 and up. $8/adult for non-members, $3/adult for members, all children free. Space is limited to 30 participants, so register now!

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 10am, April through October. (Note: HLP will be canceled August 23 and 30th, because staff will be teaching summer camp those weeks! We do have a free family program called Nature Strollers that will be meeting Friday August 23rd 10am-11am at Sperr Park, so you can still get your daily dose of nature!) 

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!
