SHERBURNE – Friends of Rogers Environmental Education Center is offering two programs on May 7th at Rogers Center. The first is a Wildflower Hike program, which is a great way to spend time outdoors with Mom on Mother’s Day weekend.

The hike will be on Cush Hill and Marsha Guzewich, retired NYS DEC Environmental Educator, will be leading the hike and identifying wildflowers along the way. This educational program is free to attend and sponsored by the Otis Thompson Foundation.

Participants can register to attend by emailing Simon at or calling Friends of Rogers at 607-674-4733. Hikers will meet at the main parking lot of Rogers Center by 10 am and be prepared to drive or carpool to the hike site on Cush Hill. This hike will take place rain or shine and is expected to run until 11:30.
