    • Chemung County Historical Society

    CCHS and Tanglewood Nature Center are partnering to present a hat making program and workshop that combines history and nature! In the late 1800s, it was fashionable to wear hats piled high with feathers and taxidermy birds. As rare bird species plummeted close to extinction, conservationists - especially women - began forming groups like the Audubon Society to end the killing of birds for fashion. Learn about the controversy and make your own fancy 19th century hat (without dead birds). Meet some of Tanglewood's birds and learn more about modern conservation.


    Friday, July 29th at 10am. This event is held at the Chemung County Historical Society. Free and open to the public. Space is limited! Reserve a spot by calling 607-734-4167 ext. 205. All ages welcome. 


    This activity is made possible in part by the QuickARTS grant program administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes and funded by the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes Inc.

    Tanglewood Nature Center and Chemung County Humane Society and SPCA, Inc. invite you - and your dog! - to Woodland Wags, a 5K or 3K fun run/walk at Tanglewood's beautiful Personius Woods trails.


    REGISTER ONLINE: https://chemungspca.givezooks.com/events/woodland-wags-2016 


    DATE CHANGE: Woodland Wags will now be held on SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 17th.


    All proceeds go to Tanglewood and to the SPCA so that we can continue to serve our communities - for the wild and domestic critters alike.


    The first 50 registrants will get sweet swag: treat-and-train bags to keep Fido on his best behavior this summer!


    No dog? No worries! Join us as we celebrate summer, enjoy the great outdoors and frolic on the Woodland Wags trail!


    Following the run, we'll have healthy snacks, adoptable animals, information tables and kids activities in the field at Personius Woods.

    You or your dog don't feel up for a 5K trek through the woods on a summer morning? This year, we are introducing a new route that is shorter (3K) and shadier!


    No retractable leashes, please - and be sure to pick up after your dog.


    Parking and sign-in will be at Personius Woods where the event will take place. Volunteers will be stationed at Lew Storch Road to direct traffic. Sign-in for the run/walk will begin at 8:00 am. The run/walk will begin at 9:00 am.
