    Have you heard the whispers (and woofs) heralding a brand-new 5ish K course at Personius Woods? Check out our Woodland Wags trail! Personius is our only dog-friendly trail system, just a minute down the road from our nature center. This August, we'll host a fun-run (...or jog... or walk...) with Chemung County SPCA. Run or walk with your leashed dog, or solo, then join us in the field for a festival with music, food, friends, and beer tastings from local craft breweries. There will also be adoptable dogs to visit, and training demonstrations on how to teach your own pup a new trick. Kids activities and games too! Fun for the whole family.
