tanglewood nature center and museum

The Nature Center is closed to the public. Trails will remain open for hiking. 

The Tanglewood Learning Pod will be held as usual.

We anticipate being closed through March 2021, although we very much look forward to reopening the Nature Center to visitors as soon as it is safe to do so.
If you have any questions, please call us at 607-732-6060 for more information. 

Tanglewood Nature Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our mission 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 every day 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 35,000 visitors a year. 


The Nature Center and Museum is always free to visit. 

We appreciate your support in membership and in donations very much - thanks to you, our doors are open and admission is free to all.
