WILLIAMSTOWN — The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will host guided spring nature walks at 10 a.m. on April 12 and 2:30 p.m. on April 13. Environmental educators will lead the group around the nature center looking for signs of spring. During the walk, participants might hear a variety of songbirds sing, see birds begin to create their nests, or see trees and flowers begin to sprout, all signs of warmer days to come. This family-oriented program will begin or end with a book reading and/or a simple craft.
Birds, reptiles and amphibians all hatch from eggs. In Oswego County, most of these eggs are laid in the spring. On Wednesday, April 14 at 10 a.m., the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will be hosting a Geocaching Egg Hunt. This family-oriented program will teach participants how to use a GPS device and then hunt plastic eggs in the woods. Bring your own GPS device or borrow a GPS device from Oswego County 4-H for the duration of the program. Each unit will be programmed to search for three special eggs.
The fee for each of these programs is $4 per person, up to $12 per family, and children under three are free! Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, visit http://thatscooperativeextension.org/events.
