SUMMER CAMP 2021!

For camp families: you can check out the different themes for each week, learn more, and sign up today on our website: https://tanglewoodnaturecenter.wildapricot.org/camp
We all know last summer wasn’t quite the one we imagined. But the summer of 2021 can be fun in the sun! Of course, we will follow all laws and regulations from the state of NY and Chemung County – we expect to know more of the details as we get closer to the start of the summer camp season.
Here’s to building more forts, making new friends, and exploring outdoors all summer long in 2021!
We’re also hiring summer camp staff: visit our website for the application, and send all applications/resumes/questions to Camp Director Maggie Groce.
What we’re reading this week:
- Should the Finger Lakes be designated a National Heritage Area? (Like the Erie Canalway!) The National Park Service is looking for public’s input about designating the Finger Lakes region as a national heritage area. Public comments will be accepted for a 90-day period, beginning on March 1st, running through June 1st. WENY has a nice roundup of the process here.
- Plant a native tree this spring! DEC operates the Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery, which produces tree and shrub seedlings for conservation plantings on public and private lands. Native New York seed sources are used when available. The nursery’s annual spring seedling sale is open to all interested customers in New York and bordering states.
- Every sentence in this Smithsonian piece is just a wild ride.
