Beaver Lake Nature Center: Last weekend for Maple sugaring and pancake breakfasts

— Super-natural Egg-stravaganza

On Saturday, April 6, Beaver Lake Nature Center's Super-natural Egg-stravaganza allows children to discover the challenge of searching for hidden eggs that are sporting their natural spots and camouflage colors not dyed hot pink and fluorescent blue. After the fun of the egg hunt, families are invited to stay awhile to explore the amazing science of eggs. Registration required as this program for children up to 10 years old fills quickly; $6 per child.

Monday Morning Bird Walks

Monday mornings in April, May and June, visitors at Beaver Lake Nature Center can join an expert birder to search for spring migrants and summer residents. Beginning at 8 a.m., Monday Morning Bird Walks are great for both beginners and advanced birders. $5.

Ski 100 miles

Beaver Lake Nature Center offers Ski 100 Miles, an incentive to get out and enjoy the nature center's trails this winter. Cross-country skiers can sign up to record ski mileage in a personal logbook and stamp in the date at the front desk for verification. When a skier has accumulated 100 miles, he/she will be rewarded with a long-sleeve T-shirt proclaiming "I Skied 100 Miles at Beaver Lake Nature Center." The registration fee is $10; no time limit to reach the 100-mile goal.

Walk 100 Miles

Beaver Lake Nature Center welcomes visitors to sign up for our popular walking program that rewards the completion of walking 100, 200, 300 or 1,000 miles. This ongoing program helps motivate walkers to get out into the peaceful woods to reach exercise or stress-relief goals. After registering, participants receive a logbook in which to stamp the date after each walk and keep track of mileage covered. There is no time limit, as Walk 100 Miles is an ongoing program. Upon completing a goal, walkers will be rewarded with a commemorative T-shirt, with a different design for each of the four goals. There is a $5 program fee.

Beaver Lake Nature Center is an Onondaga County Park located at 8477 East Mud Lake Road, four miles west of Baldwinsville off Route 370.
