Tanglewood News & Updates (July 2)

Summer camp is underway! The kids are out fishing and hiking and exploring. It is SO nice to hear them laughing and playing.

The Nature Center has opened – and THANK YOU to all the guests who are here, wearing masks, and being mindful of physical distancing in the exhibit hall.

We are not able to host in-person programming yet, but you can visit the animals, or check out our weekly Wednesday at noon facebook live animal programs or our youtube channel! (The live vids are uploaded to youtube so you can watch them there, too.)

As a reminder for visitors inside the nature center:

  • masks are required inside, at all times
  • the exhibit hall has been changed to a one-way hall
  • the restrooms are limited to one person at a time (or up to 3 from within one household, you can take your child in with you!)
  • the picnic pavilion is no longer open to the public – it is reserved for the use of summer campers
  • we will change our summer hours to accommodate our extra-rigorous cleaning and keep our summer campers, staff, and volunteers safe. The Nature Center will be open Tuesday-Friday 9am-4pm, and closed Saturday-Monday through Labor Day.

You can always consult our COVID19 page on our website for the latest information.

TRAILS ARE OPEN, so enjoy a hike!

What we’re reading this week:

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.
