Become a Nature Up North explorer to share your encounters with wild things and wild places in New York's North Country. Post your wildlife sighting, favorite trails, great place for locally-grown foods and even your events.
Come out and see how many animals we can identify through the trails at the Robert Moses Nature Center. Then, using GPS units, let's document animal activity. Free event for children 5 - 12-years-old. Saturday, Dec 7th from 1 - 3pm. Call (315) 705-5022 to sign-up.
How do animals live through freezing North Country winters? Kids will learn about the strategies local mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians use to survive the winter, including adaptation, hibernation, and migration. We will play an animal snow tracking game and create a winter craft. Let's make the most of winter by learning how local animals spend theirs!
This event will be held at the Clarkson Bookstore in Potsdam.
Join us as The Friends of the Robert Moses Nature Center takes explorers through the trails at night under the light of the full moon. The trails are easy to hike or snowshoe. Fun for all ages. Skiers must be experienced. Enjoy marshmallows around the fire afterwards. Bring snowshoes or skis, or rent them for $4/set. Meet at the trailhead. Participants should dress for weather. Call (315) 705-5022 to sign-up.
The Indian Creek Nature center hosts a wonderful array of interesting animals throughout the year. Peter O’Shea, local naturalist and author, will lead the group in identifying various creatures by their tracks and other unique features. If snow is sufficiently deep, trackers can bring their snowshoes or borrow them from the Nature Center. If no snow, we’ll scout the trails on foot. Dress appropriately.
