Event Description:

Suitable for tweens, teens and adults

Join us for this 2.5-hour workshop to learn about collecting and identifying some of our local ants. More than simply a hike to observe ants, this program will involve collecting ants and bringing them back to the Discovery Center to freeze and identify. Bring water and dress for the sun, the shade, and to go off trail. Hiking off-trail may increase your exposure to ticks. It is recommended that all visitors to the Albany Pine Bush Preserve wear pants with long socks that can be pulled up over their pant legs and shirts that are tucked into the waistband.

Fee: Free! Reservations required for all attendees (regardless of age). Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

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.

While leashed pets are permitted on marked trails, we ask that visitors not bring pets to our educational programs.

CANCELLATION POLICY: No refunds. It is, however, permissible to send or designate another person to use your program registration.
