Rice Creek Field Station at SUNY Oswego

Add to Itinerary

In addition to academic offerings, the field station provides public programs in nature education for groups and individuals, school aged to adult. Four nature trails, open to the public, provide opportunities for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The Orange trail, about two miles in length, is the only trail open for bicycling. The trails pass through fields and woods in several stages of succession. Trail maps are available online and at the field station building. The grounds surrounding the station include an herb garden and 300 acres of fields, forests, ponds and streams.
