If there is not sufficient snow, there will be a winter walk.
An environmental educator will give a brief instructional clinic on snowshoe technique and then lead participants for a short wander through the Center’s mixed woods and wetlands.
There is a program fee. These programs are designed for individuals, not organized groups.
While snowshoeing is much less strenuous than cross-country skiing, participants are encouraged to dress warmly and in layers. Outdoor footwear, winter boots that can be strapped into a snowshoe, should be worn. Sneakers and fashion boots with heels do not fit in the straps and will make walking very difficult.
Amboy 4-H Environmental Educational Center is located on Route 183, between Routes 13 and 69 in eastern Oswego County.
Those seeking more information may call the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Office at 963‑7286.
