Ben’s already in for two laps – let’s make it three!
Tanglewood news Nov. 6 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.
Speaking of the trails… we have a challenge for you!
Run the Tanglewood Red Trail during the month of November and submit a screenshot of your run (include the time and the map). Fastest times (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) earn trophies. Everyone else? Pain, glory, and a good story.
$20 per registrant. Pay after your run, so you can upload your payment and your screenshot at the same time.
Not a runner but still want to participate?
You can make our resident ultra runner, Ben Amsler, Run for the Hills. Over and over again. Donate any amount of your choice, and for every $500 donated to Tanglewood during the month of November, Ben will run one loop of the Red Trail on the Tanglewood property. He’s only $300 from running a third lap of the Red Trail – to make Ben run, please donate and make sure to drop Ben’s name in the comment field so your donation counts towards his grueling run!
What we’re reading this week:
- Our friends at the Southside Community Center are hiring a Youth Programs Director! Position description here (PDF).
- “The Yurok Tribe plans to soon reintroduce North America’s largest bird to northern California, where the raptor hasn’t soared for a century.” They could get their first condors as early as 2021!
- Operation Chinchilla is a GO!
Be well and hike often. Keep your eyes open – lots of evening grosbeaks around these days! Share your photos and nature stories with us!
