Event Description:

Pine barrensCalling all kids!! Would you know what to do if you were outside playing or hiking and became lost? If you're not sure, this program is for you. Hug a Tree was developed to teach children a few of the most basic and vital survival principles. It was specifically designed for children between the ages of 7 and 11 but can be effective with slightly younger and older children. We will start with an indoor presentation and demonstrations (including a rescue dog!), followed by an outside hike. Please remember to dress for the weather.

Pre-registration is required for all events.

Fee: $3.00/person, $5.00/family, Children under 5 free.

Please plan to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the start of the program to purchase your ticket.
Tickets can also be purchased in advance of the program at the Discovery Center reception desk.
Groups with 8 or more people, please call us for special accommodations.

Note: Programs begin promptly at times listed. Please notify us if you need to cancel your registration so we can open your spot up to the waiting list.

CANCELLATION POLICY: No refunds. It is, however, permissible to send or designate another person to use your program registration. Please call 518-456-0655 if you have any questions or concerns.
