Sun, Dec 8: Higley Flow State Park Annual Ski/Snowshoe/Hike and Cookout: Bring your kids, their grandparents, and your dogs to this annual early winter event. We’ll choose ski,snowshoe, or hike depending on conditions and do 2-3 miles followed by a cookout at a lean-to. I provide hot chocolate, hot dogs and fixings. Bring a snack to share if you wish. Contact Blair Madore, madorebf@potsdam.edu, 315-261-0751.

Sat, Dec 21: Solstice Ski to Clear Pond Ski into Clear Pond in the White Hill Wild Forest in Parishville. It is 1.9 mi. from the paved road (where we park) to the pond, following a snowmobile trail. The trail continues along the north side of the pond. Depending on how far we can go, the round-trip will be 4 to 5 miles. This is a moderately strenuous trip. It will be weather dependent for skiing. We will hike if there is no snow. Contact David Trithart, dtrithar@twcny.rr.com.

Sat, Jan 4: Winter Celebration at Robert Moses State Park Nature Center Our traditional Winter pot luck party will take place for the first time at the new Eugene L. Nicandri Nature Center in Massena; and we’re holding it on the first Saturday of January instead of New Year’s Day. Bring simple snacks like hors d’oeuvres and desserts for a simple pot luck requiring no cooking and no or very limited warming. There are excellent trails for short ski, snowshoe, or hiking trips depending on conditions, starting about 11:00 AM. Brief tour of the Nature Center and its displays at 2:00 PM followed by party, which will end before 5:00 PM. Contact David Katz at 315-386-4393 or davidk@slic.com.
