What do Uma Thurman and Elaine have in common?
Tanglewood news Oct. 7, 2020
Both of their wise and melodious voices will be on your tv on October 13th! Our friends and partners WSKG are hosting a screening and panel discussion with Elaine on October 13th. Watch The Age of Nature, narrated by Uma, then join Elaine and her son Ben (anthropology PhD student at Ohio State University) to discuss nature, conservation, and community.
WSKG is also hosting a very cool (all ages) art contest – artists are being asked to illustrate how we can make a difference in conservation, how nature and society are co-existing in a positive way. Learn more here!
The Nature Center is CLOSED to the public until Oct. 20th due to the increase in COVID19 cases in Chemung County. As we get closer to our hopeful reopening date, we will evaluate and update on our website as well as social media and via this email newsletter. In the meantime, our trails are open! Please enjoy hiking, birdwatching, and leaf peeping all autumn long.
Unfortunately, this two week closure means that the Oct. 10th guided hike is canceled. We hope to be able to hold the Oct. 24th guided hike along the Red Trail.
Guided hikes depart from the trail kiosk at 10am. Check out the events page on our website to learn more about the trail length and difficulty! No registration is needed, it’s a drop-in hike, weather permitting. So come hike with us on the following Saturdays:
- October 24th – Red Trail
- November 7th – Orange Trail
- November 21st – Yellow Trail
What we’re reading and listening to this week:
- How eBird killed birding. (The author does somewhat walk back this dramatic headline, ha.)
- Climate change lawsuits will be heard by the Supreme Court.
- Congratulations to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna for winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry for their gene editing technique CRISPR!
Be well and hike often. Share your photos and nature stories with us!
