Rice Creek naturalists to lead 2 outdoor sessions of each ramble in July, August


Rice Creek Rambles, free naturalist-led walks at SUNY Oswego’s ecologically diverse biological field station, will take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. every other Saturday from mid-July to mid-August.

July 16: “The Green Above”—The trees provide habitats for many living things and shady paths for people to enjoy. Visitors can wander trails and identify some of the trees at Rice Creek.

July 30: “Invertebrates: What’s Under that Rock?”—What animals live under the rocks in the pond and stream? Attendees can explore the wetlands of Rice Creek looking for all sorts of invertebrates.

Aug. 13: “Frogs: Smooth and Slimy.”—Frogs can fascinate and tell visitors much about the health of an ecosystem. Attendees can search the edges of streams and ponds for the frogs of Rice Creek.

Visitors can call the field station, off Thompson Road south of the main SUNY Oswego campus, at 216-6877 the morning of each event to check on trail conditions.
