Tuesdays at Tanglewood – Animal Signs

Posted on 6/4/2012 by Rebecca Woodcock

Tuesdays at Tanglewood – Animal Signs

On Tuesday, June 12, 2012 Tanglewood will begin its annual summer series: Tuesdays at Tanglewood. The first program will be Animal Signs. Follow a trail of animal signs to discover some of the animals that make the park their home. We will also discuss some of the habitat components and adaptations necessary for their survival. Children will receive coloring sheets with images of the “animals” we encounter. To participate in the Animal Signs program, meet at Shelter 2 at 10:00 am.

The summer programs feature a variety of nature activities and will be free to the public, with the exception of the $2 per car Tanglewood Park entrance fee for all programs at Shelter 2 and Walnut Hall. Registered RV campers and annual pass holders do not pay the entrance fee.

These programs will be take place on most Tuesdays beginning June 12 through August 14 at 10:00 am. All programs last approximately an hour.

Participants should bring their own sunscreen, insect repellent, and water bottle, and wear comfortable hiking clothes and shoes. The programs are designed for all ages, but children ages 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
