Join us for a night hike to call in some of our native wild owls. We’ll begin the evening with some basics about owl habitats, adaptations, and behavior, and introduce you to our resident non-releasable owls, Sophie the Great Horned Owl and Oliver the Barred Owl. Then hit the trail! BYO headlamp/flashlight.
Pre-registration is required. Too large of a group makes it harder to call in owls - we are capping attendance at 30 guests. All ages welcome but use your best judgment about how fun it is for a very tiny one to hike at night in winter.
Nine miles of scenic trails in the Finger Lakes area that begin at the Nature Center allow you to experience the natural beauty of the Chemung Valley first-hand. We offer hiking year-round and winter activities including cross-country skiing and snowshoe rentals. Our 12,000 square foot building features a museum with 43 species of live animals, interactive exhibits and a comfortable library for bird-watching and reading. Looking for a place to gather? Our building also offers 2 meeting rooms for corporate meetings and events, retreats, wedding receptions and even Birthday parties!
Tanglewood is the local leader in environmental education; serving over 14,000 children in the Southern Tier of NY and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. We offer programs that include live animal presentations, outdoor experiences and hands-on activities. Our programs include school field trips, scouting groups, spring and summer camps and weekend activities for children.
