SHERBURNE – From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 18 Rogers Environmental Education Center is hosting the 42nd annual Winter Living Celebration. This free, family friendly event has activities for everyone to enjoy this winter season.
It’s exciting to have the biggest winter celebration in the area for the 42nd year.” said Simon Solomon, Friends of Rogers executive director. “Thanks to the generosity of Blueox Energy & Neighborhood Markets for the second year, we can provide this event to the community at no charge.”
The event will feature a horse-drawn sleigh ride provided by Lamplit Farm, with the backup of a wagon ride if there isn’t enough snow for the sleigh. Representatives of Rodgers say that either way, “the ride is one of the memories your family will cherish for years to come.”
In keeping with Winter Living Celebration tradition, visitors have the opportunity to be a “human bird-feeder,” try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, view Environmental Conservation Officer and Forest Ranger demonstrations, view the Maple Experience by NYS Maple, try the Rogers center maple syrup from our own sugar bush ,and make campfire s’mores provided by Victorian Rose of Bouckville.
There will be live music by the Susquehanna String Band in the visitor center, along with representatives from the Chenango Bird Club, Bullthistle Hiking Club and Knapp Knoll Woodworks. Boise Bees Fluffy Creates and Ginny Marris will be vendors in the Bird Cabin with the kid’s crafts.
