Trees and Ferns and Birds, Oh My!

- 12:00 pm

Come explore with us at this free, family-friendly, informal guided hike in the woods, led by Community Programs Director, Lin Gibbs, with activities designed to engage the senses and inspire discovery.

For your wildlife sanctuary adventure, please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes (waterproof boots if it has been wet), and bring along tick and bug repellent. We will have some water and snacks on hand. If you’d like to have lunch at the trailhead after the hike, you are welcome to bring along a bag lunch.

Meet us at the sanctuary parking lot that is adjacent to 31270 Middle Road in Rutland, NY.  To get to the Sanctuary from Watertown, take State Street (SR 126) east.  Turn right onto Community Drive (CR 162). Turn left onto Middle Road (CR 160) at the stop sign.  There is a white church on the southeast corner of intersection of Community Drive and Middle Road. The Wildlife Sanctuary is about 3 miles down Middle Road on the north side (left side) of the road.  Look for the wooden sign at the entrance to the parking lot.

For more information or to RSVP (encouraged), contact Lin Gibbs at 315-779-2239.
