The mission of Tanglewood Nature Center is to lead and support education and preservation efforts in our region to achieve a heightened awareness, understanding, enjoyment, and caring for our natural environment. 

We strive to fulfill our mission everyday by: maintaining over ten miles of trails, offering educational programming for children and adults, providing homes in our exhibits for more than 40 native and exotic animals, and welcoming over 30,000 visitors a year. 

Who likes to Tangle with Zombies?
Tanglewood, in conjunction with the Elmira College Chemistry Club, will be holding our third Tangle with Zombies “Zombie Run” on October 25 at 10 a.m. in conjunction with our popular Haunted Happenings event.
