Nature Center closed to visitors for remainder of year.

Tanglewood news Oct. 21st 2020

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 and foliage.

Though the exhibits and restrooms will not be available to hikers and visitors, you can still get your nature fix in a variety of ways: 

  • the hawks and owls will be outside to visit! 
  • our charismatic mammals have been moved to the large windows by the front deck, so you can peek in and see those playful critters! 
  • the treehouse, Children’s Sensory Trail, and the docks on both ponds still provide exciting opportunities to view wild birds, scampering mammals, and aquatic adventures!

Tanglewood will remain active with our educational programs for kids and for adults too. 

Events to keep an eye out for: 

  • Run for the Hills – red trail race challenge through the month of November, registration opening on 10/30! Pain & glory for runners. For non-runners… you can donate to make our awesome Board member Ben run laps of the red trail (evil grin) 
  • Virtual nature programming for families weekly in November
  • Virtual trivia night in December

What we’re reading and listening to this week: 

Be well and hike often.  Share your photos and nature stories with us!
