AMBOY - The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will present a variety of nature programs for the month of March. At 6 p.m. on Friday, March 10, go on a guided moonlit hike through the center’s woods learning about nature and ecology at night. Participants should bring flashlights or headlamps and are encouraged to dress warmly and in layers. They will plan to snowshoe, so outdoor footwear or winter boots that can be strapped into a snowshoe should be worn. If there is a lack of snow, they will walk the nature trail on foot. Feel free to bring own snowshoes or borrow theirs - there is no additional fee to use the facility’s snowshoes.

Join the center’s natural resources educator and learn at 9 a.m. All About Birds on Saturday, March 11. Learn about various tips and tricks to bird watching and all the different smart phone applications, field guides, and more that can be used. The group will also learn about migratory species that are returning from their wintering grounds to get ready for the breeding season. Participants will go on a bird walk afterwards on the trails to try and find birds; bring a pair of binoculars or borrow a pair from the facility. If the snow load allows for it, snowshoes will be worn. There is no additional cost to rent snowshoes from the facility if attending the program.
