AMBOY – The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will present a public program, Poking about with Porcupines, on April 9 at 2 p.m.
At first glance, the North American porcupine may seem to have a carefree and leisurely approach to life.
However, biological stress, natural predators, and human interaction frame a different perspective of porcupine life.
There will be a slide presentation on the natural history of this fascinating forest animal with naturalist Pat Carney.
Following the indoor presentation, there will be a hike through the spring woodlands to search for signs of porcupines and their activities.
Dress for an early spring hike.
The program fee is only $4 fee per person or $12 per family, and children under the age of 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.
For information about the facility and its programming, call the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Office Monday through Friday at 315-963-7286.
