For those not afraid of single-digit temperatures, the county's snowmobile trails are open.

''Pay attention to your surroundings and watch your speed,'' the recording said, which can be accessed by calling 800-242-4569, followed by pressing the No. 2 and then 5.

The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will host a cross country skiing and snow shoeing tour of its Loomis Goose Creek Wetland Preserve on Saturday from 2-3 p.m.

The third largest wetland on Chautauqua Lake, the site is also one of the most important fish and wildlife habitats remaining on the lake, providing habitat for kingfishers, heron, mallards,…
