Events - Winter Wonderland At Reinstein Woods

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), in partnership with Friends of Reinstein Woods, invites the public to celebrate “Winter Wonderland in the Woods” on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 12 to 4 p.m. at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve in the town of Cheektowaga, Erie County.

Visitors can discover a variety of outdoor pursuits during the event. Ice-fishing demonstrations will take place throughout the afternoon and visitors will be able to try cross-county skiing in a demonstration area (weather permitting). Snowshoe rentals will also be available for those who wish to explore the trails.

Children will be able to try snowshoeing regardless of the weather and enjoy winter challenges including a snowball target toss, Bird Spotting Challenge trail, and a snowflake investigation station. Kids can also express their creative side in the snow art area and make crafts indoors.

The Niagara Frontier Search and Rescue Team will be on hand to talk about winter rescue and will provide a compass navigation course for participants looking to test their navigation skills. DEC Forest Rangers will demonstrate flat ice rescue techniques, and an Erie County Park Ranger will offer brief winter wildlife survival hikes throughout the day.

After enjoying outdoor activities, attendees can warm up inside the education center with hot drinks and snacks sold by Friends of Reinstein Woods. Messinger Woods Wildlife Care will present informative talks on wild animal rehabilitation at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. There will also be door prizes, costumed characters, exhibits, and more.

The event will take place regardless of snow conditions, and additional activities featuring nature experiences will be added in case of warm weather.

Registration is not required for this event. There is no entry fee, but donations to Friends of Reinstein Woods are always welcome. Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve is located at 93 Honorine Drive, off of Como Park Boulevard in Cheektowaga.
