Bird Song Saunter
Friday, June 5th @ 7 pm
To paraphrase a popular movie, “The woodlands are alive with the sound of music,” – bird song of course, and the music is enchanting! Come enjoy an evening concert of avian songs, with a walk co-led by Faith Baker of the Onondaga Audubon Society and naturalist Pat Carney. Observe and listen to nature’s feathered friends who are courting, nesting, and defending territory.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a pair of binoculars to use. Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center does have a few to borrow. More info here.

Meet the Web-Feet
Sunday, June 7th @ 2 pm
The spring skies and water echo with noise and activity as ducks, geese, herons, and other birds return to their natal ponds to court and raise their young. Participants will enjoy a slide presentation on ducks and other water bird residents of the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center’s ponds. Following the indoor program, participants will walk to the beaver pond, and perhaps see a Wood Duck or Merganser hen with ducklings or hear an American Bittern calling. Binoculars are recommended. The facility has a limited number available for use. 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.
