If you're interested in Erie Canal history, and the birds that call the Montezuma Wetlands Complex their home, this is the program for you! Join a local historian and Audubon staff for a leisurely walk to explore the Erie Canal history and listen and look for newly fledged birds, enjoy the wildflowers, and learn about the important cultural and economic impact the canal system had on upstate NY.

Photo Safari (for kids) at the MAC!
Do you have a digital camera or camera on your phone? Would you like to learn how to use it better, and how to take creative photos? This program is focused on kids ages 8 and up. The program will start with a brief introduction to basic photography, and then we'll head out for an easy 1-mile stroll through the woods, around the wetlands, and over the grasslands to photograph wildflowers, butterflies, and bird- perfect subjects for new photographers. At the conclusion of the program, we'll view the photos on the big screen. Children must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Fee: $8/child.
Space is limited and registration is required.
