Winter break programming on the Amboy 4-H Environmental Schooling Heart | Arts and Leisure

WILLIAMSTOWN – During the upcoming school break, the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will present several fun and educational programs for youth and their families.

Participants can learn to be a chef for birds from 2-3 pm on Tuesday, Feb. 22. During this indoor program, attendees will learn what birds like to eat and make a birdseed treat to take home for their backyard or neighborhood birds. Also from 6-7:30 pm on Tuesday, Feb. 22, visitors can experience the winter woods at night, with a guided hike on snowshoes after dark. Then at 10 am on Wednesday, Feb. 23, attendees can learn all about snow. Participants will explore the science of snow with simple experiments and crafts, and take a snowshoe walk through the woodlands with an environmental educator.

Snowshoes will be available for outdoor programs. Participants are reminded to dress warmly and in layers. Outdoor footwear that can be strapped into a snowshoe should be worn — sneakers and fashion boots with heels do not fit into the straps and will make walking difficult. If there is a scarcity of snow, attendees will go on a winter boat walk.

The fees for these programs are $4 per person up to $12 per family. Children under the age of three are free. Payment will be collected at the door in the form of cash or check only. Pre-registration is requested. More information and registration can be found at If people need assistance or more information, contact Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County at 315-963-7286.

While these programs are designed for families, individuals are invited and encouraged to attend. They ask that all safety measures consistent with New York state’s implementation of the most recent CDC COVID-19 guidance are followed. Bring a mask.
