The Social-Recreation program at ARC of Oswego County took advantage of the beautiful weather last Sunday to go snowshoeing at Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville.
Participants, some of whom had never tried snowshoeing before, successfully completed a 2.2-mile trail. Along the way, they learned a little about wildlife and the woods from coordinator Marc Warner, saw deer foraging close by and heard woodpeckers in the distance. The group finished up with a cup of hot chocolate and a look at the wildlife displays inside the Nature Center.
