friends of great bear outdoor rec

Outdoor Life Learners continues to reach out to all areas of Central New York. This is another one of our THURSDAY Nature Club meetups. Visit our website calendar ( for up to date locations throughout the summer.

The Great Bear Recreation Area is owned by the City of Fulton and the Town of Volney. A diversity of flora and fauna, varying terrain and the Oswego River and Oswego Canal make Great Bear a great place for non-motorized recreation such as hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing. Great Bear is a great place to hike, walk the dog, ride a mountain bike. In the winter you can ski or snowshoe. Trails are all "single track" wooded trails. You can also walk down the Oswego River to swim or fish.


*We meet each Monday or Thursday for a mid-morning hike, lunch and exploring. Locations vary, but we find ourselves mostly west of Syracuse.

Outdoor Life Learners community provides hands-on, nature-based learning opportunities for children of all ages. Our nature-immersion programs are geared towards young kids and their caretakers, youth and teens. Weekly gatherings and hikes provide a classroom without walls where children are free to roam and explore the outdoors, while skilled adults are always on hand to guide discussions, introduce seasonally-relevant themes and answer inquiries from curious minds.

Check out for more information about our programs.

Dress for the weather! Bring a picnic lunch!
