• Wet & Wild Summer
Tuesday, August 11th @ 10 am
Beat the heat this August at the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center. All ages are invited to enjoy a “wet and wild” summer morning adventure with naturalist Pat Carney. Participants will hike through Rowell Brook, investigating wildlife that lives in and near the brook. Feet will get wet while hands are busy exploring for crayfish, minnows, insect larva, and other water world creatures. Old clothes and footgear, such as old sneakers or water shoes, are strongly recommended; for safety, no flip-flops please. More info here.
• Salamander World
Sunday, August 16th @ 2 pm
Come for a walk through the cool woodlands and wetlands of the Center to explore the world of salamanders. Following a short slide presentation on the natural history and identification of native salamanders, participants will search under logs, along the brook edge, seeps, and ponds to discover these wonderfully secretive amphibians of our woodlands. Everyone should wear clothes that may get wet and/or muddy such as water-proof boots or old sneakers. More info here.
The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center, owned and operated by
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County's 4-H Program, consists of
150 acres of mixed woods, wetlands, and Rowell Brook. Three miles of hiking trails guide visitors through the ecosystems and are available to the public year round, from dusk until dawn.
