Family fun at Winter Warm-Up
This Saturday, local residents will be enjoying the experience of a winter outing featuring some invigorating exercise, environmental education as well as friendly socializing and savory food.
All ages are invited to participate in the Winter Warm-Up event to be held at the Lake George Recreation Center and Berry Pond Preserve, off Transfer Road via state Rte. 9N in the town of Lake George.
Winter Warm-Up is the Lake George Land Conservancy’s free annual event that offers family-oriented wintertime fun.
Participants can enjoy delicious homemade soups, breads, hot chocolate and coffee, and toasting marshmallows by a bonfire. In addition, there will be live raptor and other wildlife presentations; wildlife pelts and bones; local fish display; stream and watershed models; maple syrup samples and tapping display; and state Environmental Conservation vehicles for inspection. Children and parents can also keep busy with make-and-take crafts, go on a natural scavenger hunt, learn about invasive species, and play games. They also have the opportunity to listen to some storytelling by the fire, and join an easy interpretive hike — perhaps on snowshoes, depending on the weather. For details, contact the Land Conservancy at: 644-9673, or: firstname.lastname@example.org.
