Tuesdays at Tanglewood – Flying Jewels

On Tuesday, June 19, 2012, Tanglewood Park will continue its annual summer nature program series: Tuesdays at Tanglewood. The second program will be Flying Jewels – Hummingbirds of Tanglewood Park.

Find out how to attract these intriguing animals to your own lawn or garden with properly maintained feeders and nectar-rich flowers. Hummingbird crafts and activities will be available for children. To participate in the Flying Jewels program, meet at Shelter 2 at 10:00 am. All programs last approximately one hour.

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.

Participants should bring their own sunscreen, insect repellent, 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.
