Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum News (Jan. 13, 2021)
Hope your new year is off to a lucky start too!
If you want to give back to Tanglewood with a chance to win big for yourself, buy tickets to our 2nd annual Win for Wildlife raffle!
Your raffle ticket enters you for three drawings for cash prizes: $1,000, $500, and $250. Need not be present to win – this drawing will be livestreamed so you can enjoy your win from the comfort of your couch!
Drawing is Friday February 26th! Tickets are $20 each.
Your support goes directly to the mission of Tanglewood: protecting 300 acres of land, preserving critical habitat in our region, caring for native animals in our teaching collection, and educating over 30,000 a year about the importance of nature.
Tanglewood’s critters and staff are feeling lucky and grateful today too because of a fantastic young man named Bryson. Bryson just turned 8, and to celebrate his birthday, he asked for donations to Tanglewood instead of presents. What a wonderful generous kid! Thank you Bryson, and happy happy birthday!
What we’re reading this week:
- “Inside the C.I.A., She Became a Spy for Planet Earth.”
- Are monarch butterflies actually endangered? What kinds of protections do they need?
- Did you see that they announced the completion of the 750-mile multiuse trail that crosses the state of NY? Get some air in those bike tires, let’s go!
We have a new tote available on our Bonfire page – Tanglewood tees, sweatshirts, and now a reusable tote all available for purchase!
Be well and hike often. Share your photos and nature stories with us!
Due to the increasing cases of COVID-19 across our region, the Nature Center is closed to the public. The Nature Center will remain closed until 2021. As always, our trails are open! We hope you enjoy the fresh air.
