Participants enjoy the snow as they wander into the woods during a previous year’s program.

There is a program fee of just $4 per person or $12 per family, and children younger than three are free.

During this greatly enjoyed program, an environmental educator will give a brief instructional lesson on snowshoe technique and then lead participants for a short wander through the center’s mixed woods and wetlands.

Participants are encouraged to dress warmly and in layers.

Outdoor footwear or winter boots that can be strapped into a snowshoe should be worn. Sneakers and fashion boots with heels do not fit in the straps and will make walking very difficult.

If there is a scarcity of snow, attendees will enjoy a winter boot wander.

Amboy 4-H Environmental Educational Center is located on State Route 183, between routes 13 and 69 in eastern Oswego County.
