Mother’s Day Wildflower Wander Set At Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center

AMBOY – The ephemeral wildflowers of spring are blooming. On May 13 at 2 p.m., the public is invited to enjoy a Mother’s Day stroll along the trails of the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center to meet and greet with the “little people” of the forest floor at the center’s Mother’s Day Wildflower Wander program.

Participants, led by naturalist Pat Carney, will meander about the woodland exploring Wake-Robin, Goldthread, Cowslip and others whose common names and stories are as colorful as their blossoms.

Bring a mom, dad, family or friends and celebrate the day with Mother Earth.

A slide presentation will be offered if it rains.

The fee for this program is $4 fee per person or $12 per family and children younger than 3 are free.

The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center is located at 748 State Route 183 in eastern Oswego County, between routes 13 and 69 near Williamstown.
