About this EventView map
New program! Starting in March 2022, organizers are inviting budding junior naturalists and their families for monthly themed walks and nature activities at Rice Creek Field Station. Environmental educators, current/retired K-12 teachers, will be your guides to exploring the change of seasons, animals and plants, habitats and natural communities of Rice Creek Field Station, a 350-acre natural area and wildlife preserve operated by SUNY Oswego.
Walks and themed activities take place on the first Saturday of each month, at 10 am and 1 pm, and last 1.5 - 2 hours. Once children attend 10 walks, they will be inducted as a "Rice Creek Junior Naturalist."
Participation is free for children and their families, and all are welcome. Please note that children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
Children should dress to be comfortable for about 1.5 hours spent outdoors. Rain boots are highly encouraged in spring due to muddy trail conditions.
Monthly themes include:
