Night Hike
Higley Flow State Park, Colton, NY

Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 8:30pm to 9:30pm

Have you ever wondered what happens in the woods when the sun goes down and the creatures of the night come out? Join us for a night hike where one of our naturalists will guide you through the darkness to shed light on some of the amazing animal and human adaptations to the nighttime. Darkness elevates the importance of our senses outside of sight. Explorers will focus on sensory perception as they become more comfortable in the darkness and enjoy an evening of learning and exploring the night.

Survival Skills Workshop
Robert Moses State Park, Massena NY
Sunday, July 28th, 2013 - 3:30pm-5:00pm 

While the best survival tool is good preparation so that you never find yourself in a survival situation it is good to have a few skills if you ever find yourself needing to build a fire or purify water.  Join us for a fun day of compass games, fire building and other backcountry skills.  This event is for all ages and experience levels.
