tanglewood nature center and museum


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.
