Join us for some good ol’ log rolling fun! Search under logs with your families to discover who lives in these moist habitats and score points along the way! We’ll total the scores at the end and see who unearthed the most critters; but be sure to place the log back where you found it or face point deduc­tions!

$5 members, $15/family; $8 nonmem­bers, $25/family.

Sun Party

Back-up date: February 23rd

Date: Saturday, February 22
Time: 1-3pm
Location: Baltimore Woods Nature Center Phone: 315-673-1350 Email: info@baltimorewoods.org

Back-up date Feb 23rd

Our sun is the nearest star and is often overlooked by those who watch the night skies. The sun has been at its peak activity this past year with an abundance of sunspots, solar flares, and other features that are fascinating to watch and can also move and change shapes within several minutes. Come out and observe the sun through specially-filtered telescopes and see what it looks like up-close and personal. A great way to warm up on a winter afternoon!

$5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.
