Tanglewood news (July 10, 2020)
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, we will hold our annual fundraiser remotely – as a hikeathon! By signing up for our first ever Trek for Tanglewood, you will be supporting the preservation of over 300 acres of forever wild land, and the education of over 30,000 children a year on the wonders of the natural world. The hikeathon will run Sep.17th-Oct. 1st 2020.
You can register right up until the last day, but if you register by August 20th, you’re guaranteed a Trek for Tanglewood t-shirt!
Register online, hike anywhere for any distance, ask your family and friends to sponsor your hiking, and snap a pic while you’re at it – you can submit photos to win prizes from Ruffwear swag for your hiking puppy, trekking poles, backpacks, and more.
TRAILS ARE OPEN, so enjoy a hike!
What we’re reading this week:
- “Five heads are better than one for the caterpillar that dons old skulls as the ultimate fashion statement.” I cannot top this.
- Mozart’s Magic Flute… but with birds.
- the winning photos of the 2020 Audubon Photography Awards: stunning, incredible, inspiring.
Be well and hike often. Share your photos and nature stories with us!
Reminder! Dogs are allowed at Personius Woods, but NOT on the trails by the nature center. We are preserving ground-nesting bird habitats and appreciate your cooperation. We encourage you to hike with your dogs along the streams, fields, and forests at Personius.
