Sunday, February 16 • 1:00 – 3:00 PM

Come and test out some snowshoes! Boone County Naturalist Katie Healy will be here to teach participants how to snowshoe on January 19 and February 16. Join us for a discussion about snowshoeing before hitting the trails to experience snowshoeing for yourself. Afterward, regroup in the Hughes Education Building for a cup of hot cocoa. If there’s no snow, join us instead for a winter hike along the same route. Snowshoes will be provided.
