Tanglewood News March 9, 2021


Several weeks of summer camp have sold out – register soon to save your spot!

For camp families: you can check out the different themes for each week, learn more, and sign up today on our website:

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 staffvisit our website for the application, and send all applications/resumes/questions to Camp Director Maggie Groce.

What we’re reading this week: 

  • Learn more about the red-winged blackbird here and then come up this week to enjoy the sunshine, warm spring air, and the conk-la-reeeee calls echoing around the ponds! 
  • Want to hear different birds than just ones in our neighborhood? These fantastic virtual accessible programs through Georgia Audubon have me intrigued. 
  • Okay, friends with fish tanks – this one’s worrisome. Invasive zebra mussels found on aquarium moss ball products at Petco, Petsmart, and other retailers. Check out the alert and learn how to destroy the invaders

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