The TILT Office is now open at 722 James Street.

As the North Country progresses through Phase 4 of reopening, TILT staff are now back at work in the office Monday-Friday from 8:30am - 5:00pm. The office is operating safely at 50% of the building occupancy capacity. Staff are taking precautions by maintaining at least 6 feet of distance, sanitizing work stations, and wearing face masks when interacting with the public.

People who wish to visit the TILT Office are asked to do so by appointment to minimize health risk. Please call the TILT office at 315-686-5345 or email [email protected] to set up a meeting. We will also have a drop box inside the office for any paper communications that do not require further in-person discussion. 

Note that there are separate entrances for employees and public to further minimize any health risks. These entrances are sanitized daily.

Treks will be canceled through July 31st and the August Trek schedule is modified.

TILT is working to minimize large gatherings at our Treks until a time that it is declared safe to do so. At this time, TILT is cancelling all Treks through July and modifying the August schedule as following:

  • Zenda Farms Yoga Trek: July 1, 2020 - *CANCELLED*

  • Loon Census: July 18, 2020 - Accepting Registrations

Opportunities to Look Forward to...

We still plan to host the Annual Loon Census on July 18th with appropriate distancing guidelines for participants.  Modifications to the September 2020 Events and Treks schedule will be announced in August.

All in-person Summer Events will be postponed until 2021.

TILT aims to minimize large public gatherings that could potentially put our staff, volunteers, members, and community at risk. Therefore, all in-person events over the summer will be postponed until 2021. This includes the:

  • Zenda Farms Community Picnic
  • Annual Summer Gathering
  • Volunteer Recognition Event
  • Major Donor Appreciation Event

The Otter Creek 5K Family Fun Run is still tentatively scheduled for September 12th.
