4-H announces local wilderness exploration trips

WARRENSBURG The Cornell University Cooperative Extension 4-H Program is conducting two, three day Wilderness Exploration trips which are open to both 4-H and non-4-H youth. The first trip, scheduled June 27 29 is for 9-11 year olds. The group will be camping and canoeing at Thirteenth Lake in North River. The cost for this trip is $20.00 per participant. The second trip scheduled July 1618 is for 12-15 year olds. The group will be canoeing and camping at Raquette Lake. The cost for this trip is $35.00 per participant. The trips are designed to give youth a basic knowledge of the Adirondack environment including its forest and wildlife. Low-impact camping is stressed, developing in youth an attitude that they are part of, not apart from, the environment in which they live. The 4-H Wilderness Trip Program is entering its 35th year of operation. Activities on the trip will include woods lore and safety, identification of forest trees and wildlife, compass skills, canoeing skills and safety. To register for these programs call Cornell University Cooperative Extension of Warren County at (518) 623-3291 or (518) 668-4881.
