A brief bit of news - with a video link from FIOS TV on the GC Bird Sanctuary


Since you've been following the "news" on the development of the Garden City Bird Sanctuary/Tanners Pond Env Center and Arboretum, you might like to see the video (about 5 minutes) shown on FIOS TV this month about the volunteer work we do.  
Thanks again for your interest and support!  Please remember to "rejoin!" The funds DO make a difference.




Halloween Haunted Hikes


The TPEC is setting up for the Halloween fun with the Halloween Fest and Costume Parade set for Saturday October 25, from 3-5PM (rain date is Sunday Oct 26 2-4.) Games, contests, arts & crafts, with oodles of prizes and the popular Halloween Costume Parade at the Bird Sanctuary. Enjoy face painting, mail sack races, recycle rally relay, or make your own totebag. Reserve tickets by emailing gcbirdsanctuary@gmail.com Tickets are $10 each for this children’s event.

Friday and Saturday evenings 6-10 are the super popular Halloween Haunted Hikes! Take an escorted tour along the spider-webbed and holiday lighted trails but watch out! This year the place has been overrun with invasive species, and even genetically modified food! The hike isn’t your run of the mill fright fest, its a fun, creepy, and spooky walk where you meet the real horrors - every one environmentally themed, from a toxic waste spill, to a flock of Angry Birds, giant roaches, invasive vines, lovely but poisonous butterflies, the weed wizard, and Dr Jeckle Honeydew’s madly genetically engineered killer corn, tomatoes and vegetables, that just might want to snack on YOU! Don’t worry, its all in fun, and there are spooky and not so spooky walks offered for all ages.

Enjoy a Halloween snack or a drink from our refreshment stand, and support both the Girl Scouts and the community’s nature preserve. You and your family will enjoy the time, but watch out for the overly cute plastic bag monsters, so don’t litter. 

On Sunday Oct 26, there is a SINGLE expanded hike scheduled starting at 8PM...(We don’t want our volunteer boo crew to turn into zombies!) Come and enjoy! Tickets are $10 for the hike. Group discounts are available through Oct 20. Email gcbirdsanctuary@gmail.com or call (516) 326-1720.
