The Social-Recreation program at ARC of Oswego County took advantage of the beautiful weather on a recent Sunday to go snowshoeing at Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville.
Participants, some of whom had never tried snowshoeing before, successfully completed a 2.2 mile trail. Along the way, they learned a little about wildlife and the woods from coordinator Marc Warner; saw deer foraging close by; and heard woodpeckers in the distance.
The group finished up with a cup of hot chocolate and a look at the wildlife displays inside the Nature Center.
