Winter Riverside Family Hike – West Elmira (Dog & Kid Friendly)

February 19 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

Join the River Friends for a guided family hike/snowshoe/x-country ski on the riverside trails, and learn more about plants and animals.

Bring your boots, snowshoes, or cross country skis (if we have snow), and little kids are welcome with a guardian! Dogs are also welcome, but must be kept on a leash. Kids do not have to be leashed, but we will leave that up to you! 🙂

We will enjoy a short guided family adventure on the riverside trails behind West Elmira (meet at the Grove Street Boat Launch in Elmira at 1:15pm to start hiking at 1:30pm), while we look for and learn about all the different types of animals and plants who call the watershed their home in winter. This program will be educational, fun, and participants will be provided with a small snack.

This program will have a Member and Non-member rate for adults – KIDS AND DOGS ARE FREE with a guardian, and all adult attendees MUST pre-register. To become a member, please visit our website – www.chemungriverfriends.org. To register for this program, please use this TICKETS link.

DON’T FORGET TO BRING A WATER BOTTLE AND DRESS APPROPRIATELY! We will be hiking at a minimum, or snowshoeing, or cross country skiing, and it will most likely be COLD – at the least snow boots are recommended, and dress warmly with skin covered. (Skis and snowshoes and snow boots are not provided, and you must bring your own.).
