Rice Creek Field Station to offer Exploring Nature twice this July

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station once again invites children to attend Exploring Nature, a weeklong nature education program held twice each summer.

Since 1983, Exploring Nature has encouraged young people’s curiosity and concern about their world. Participants explore and investigate life around the 400-acre, mixed-terrain property through nature walks, activities and games.

This summer, Exploring Nature will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 7 to 11 or July 14 to 18.

Parents may register children ages 5 to 15 by visiting www.oswego.edu/ricecreek, clicking the Programs link, then the Exploring Nature page, where the form is in the right column.

The page also offers a link to a scholarship form. Rice Creek Associates — a supporting group furthering the educational, research and other goals of the field station — and the Exploring Nature program will offer some financial assistance for a limited number of children who otherwise would not be able to attend Exploring Nature.

For more information, contact the field station, on Thompson Road off State Route 104 about a mile south of the main SUNY Oswego campus, at 315-312-6677 or visit www.oswego.edu/ricecreek.
