AMBOY - The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will present several public programs this fall. At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 22, there will be a program to celebrate the autumnal equinox, when day and night are in perfect balance. Celebrate the fall equinox on this guided evening walk through the woods and out to the beaver pond. Starting before the sun sets, this guided evening walk may require flashlights for the last half of the stroll.
At 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 26, join the center’s environmental educator for an Amboy Amble, exploring the ever-changing ecological environment of the facility. These guided walks offer a unique nature study opportunity, while participants actively search for woodland inhabitants and learn more about each find as it is discovered.
Additionally, at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16, visitors are invited to experience the changes cooler weather brings to the wood as autumn paints the forest in hues of crimson and gold. Crisp days and chilly nights create a kaleidoscope of colors on this guided nature walk.
