walk in the woods at cummings nature center

Take a hike and enjoy Family Fun in the Winter Woods at the  Rochester Museum & Science Center's Cumming Nature Center, 6472 Gulick Road, Naples.

As you walk along the Helen Gordon Trail you can spy on springtails (they're little creepy, crawlies), pretend to walk in the hooves of a deer searching for food, and stalk the Wild Horse Hoof Fungus.

 The  nature center will be open for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Trails will be open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through March 4.

Admission is $3. Call (585) 374-6160 or go to rmsc.org.
